Start in Europe for Facebook Shops
Facebook Shops, is a place in the Facebook application, for finding businesses and searching for products. This new popular social networking service is now available to UK users, making it the first European marketplace to launch this feature.
Zuckerberg himself announced the service last May, and a few months later, in August, the service was officially launched, which allows businesses to sell directly through the Facebook platform. Then, the trial operation began in the US and launched an additional shopping destination on Instagram, the Instagram Shop.
Now, after the US, Facebook Shops are also available to users in the UK as well as Canada. Within the service, both large companies and small businesses of all sizes can reach new customers, since virtually any business can open a virtual showcase, a store on the platform.
