the Virtual Garage - Facebook
Facebook Brings Home the Virtual GarageNot only are the ways we socialize changing so are our homes or rather our virtual homes. We all can agree that Facebook has become more than a social network. For some members it has become the virtual garage. Or at least that was my recent experience in the network.The new Facebook ticker allows us to see what our friends are doing on Facebook. The other day I noticed some friends joining a particular page so I jumped over there to check it out. Boy, I am glad I did. What I found was a way to have a “garage” sale without the garage. And without a lot of the other hassles associated with having a garage sale. I observed the events of the page for a few days before I opted to try it out for myself. I had a few items I wouldn’t mind selling but I knew in a “real” garage sale I was not too likely to obtain the modest amount of money I would be asking for them.I cleared and cleaned my first item. Staged it for a photo op. Posted it on the page and within FOUR minutes it was SOLD. We did a little negotiating; I was polite but firm and received my asking price. Within an hour the buyer arrived with cash in hand and we were both happy. Move over eBay - Facebook has arrived!
