Facebook creates Developer Marketplace

In order to make it easier for Facebook developers and those in need of their services to find each other, Facebook a couple of weeks ago launched the Developer Marketplace. Facebook added a special category to its more general Marketplace app and displays listings inside the Facebook Developers app.

The Developer Marketplace allows development companies and independent developers to post their resumes/credentials. Companies like Face It!, Techlightenment, and FBFactory have sprung up to build Facebook applications for firms ready to make the leap into the Facebook world and establish a more powerful Facebook presence.

The Developer Marketplace is also an effective place for freelance developers to find work. Those currently using freelance marketplaces like oDesk and eLance are now be able to tie their resumes to their Facebook profiles, adding more trust to the traditionally hit-or-miss freelance marketplace. Developers interested in finding work can directly respond to “Wanted” ads using Facebook messages.

From the Developer News blog, to the Platform Status blog, to the Developer Wiki, and now the Developer Marketplace, the Facebook Platform team has been doing a great job getting information into the hands of the Developer community and supporting the cultivation of the developer ecosystem. Developers should offer a big “thank you” to Dave Morin and the entire Platform team!
