  • Facebook is working with Handy, HomeAdvisor and Porch to bring more home service professionals into Marketplace.

    According to an announcement from the company’s VP of Marketplace, Deb Liu, Facebook users ask for home service recommendations more than any other topic.

    “By working with industry leaders, Handy, HomeAdvisor and Porch, Marketplace will provide an all-in-one place to complete your next home project — from proposal to completion,” writes Liu.

    Liu says the home service websites will offer hundreds of thousands of top-rated professionals in the US via Marketplace and will include their ratings, reviews, credentials and locations. Users will also be able to communicate with home service professionals using Messenger.

    Facebook says the home service “experience” will start rolling out today and will be available to everyone in the US in coming weeks.

    Google and Amazon each entered the home services market several years ago.
