Snoop Dogg Invites Fans to Sell Stuff on His Facebook Page

MarketPage launched last week as a marketplace solution for Facebook pages and hip-hop superstar Snoop Dogg is the first to use it.
MarketPage allows anyone to have a shop on their Facebook page and invite others to sell there. So it's Facebook as a marketplace. "We've quickly discovered that it doesn't make sense to create a shop just for your friends. People seem to be coming together at pages that promote a certain artist, brand or community and attract a lot of fans. That's the place where you want to sell. We've made it possible for all the 850 million Facebook users to create a true e-commerce community," says Melvin Tercan, the CEO of Tinypay, Inc. the young start-up behind MarketPage.
Snoop Dogg announced his partnership with the start-up while performing at a surprise performance at SXSW. Snoop will be the first to have his merchandise for sale on his "Snooper market." Over 15 million of his fans on Facebook will have instant access to his MarketPage. He has invited other merchants to sell on his page and plans to open it up for everyone in the near future. Snoop says he's excited to let his fans "get all their Snoop swag on."
The future of Facebook is business and Tinypay, Inc. seems to be one step ahead in enabling users to make a profit through the use of social networks.
