Facebook Policy

Facebook has hired former FCC chairman Kevin Martin as its vice president for mobile and global access policy as it works to bring the internet to more parts of the world.

Martin, who has been a consultant to the social network for the last two years, will be based in Washington. His arrival comes as Facebook looks to untangle its somewhat complex stance on web and telecoms regulation that is caught between its backing of tougher net neutrality rules and its bid to provide free web access to Facebook and other selected services in emerging markets. via The Drum

Facebook Market

Facebook is to go head-to-head with online auction house eBay with the launch of its own second-hand goods service allowing members to flog items such as used appliances, unwanted event tickets and electronics.
