Facebook has introduced a local services website in India to help customers discover the best-rated service providers in their vicinity.
Users can opt for services including arts & marketing, automotive, business services, financial services, event planning, home improvement, lifestyle, medical & health, pet services, and spa, beauty and personal care by logging on to facebook.com/services.
The website works on the hyperlocal model, where services are catered to a local geographical area, and lets vendors upload their business details through their Facebook page.
The site has been under pilot since November 2015, and lets users rate and review a given service.
The development was first reported by ET. In an emailed response to Inc42, Facebook spokesperson said, “We’re in the early stages of testing a way for people to easily find more Pages for the services they’re interested in.”
