Facebook Is Not The Only Game In Town For Your Garage Sale

They are the biggest, though.

With close to 1.9 billion daily active users and 59% market share among social media apps, there’s no question that they rule supreme over social media around the world.

But how much does that actually matter?

1.9 billion people on Facebook do not know about your garage sale

So Facebook has a lot of active users. Does that mean that 1.9 billion people know about your garage sale just because you made an event on Facebook?

The answer is No. Not even close.

In fact, the opposite occurs, because Facebook prioritizes click bait over everything else. So by the time your friends, followers and group members see your garage sale post, they’ve already seen a bunch of content that’s put them in a negative mood and they won’t care less about your garage sale (or what you’re selling on Marketplace, or your local business, or anything else for that matter).

Facebook prioritizes click bait over everything else.

So if you’re relying on Facebook to be your end-all-be-all marketing solution for your garage sale, you’re probably not doing yourself any favors.
