Facebook launches Shops feature for small businesses
Popular social media Facebook has taken a big initiative keeping in mind the small business in the global crisis caused by coronavirus. Launching a platform called 'Facebook Shops'. Here small traders or entrepreneurs can launch their online shops. This initiative can be launched completely free of cost and very easily. There is also support from third party companies such as Shopify, Big Commerce and U.
Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg made the announcement in a Facebook post on Tuesday (May 19th) night. He announced, ‘We will launch Facebook Shops today. The basic idea is that any small business can sell goods directly with our app. If you want, you can visit other people's shops. You can also buy it through our app. '
"I think it's very important now," he said. Because of the economic downturn that has started due to Covid-19, many small businesses are going online to survive. In this situation, everyone is being asked to stay at home. Working physically from the outside is now a very difficult subject and because of this millions of people are losing their jobs. I have been personally working with the Facebook Shops team every day for a few months now for those who would like to use a tool in a small business so that it can be unveiled quickly. '
