    "Being active on Facebook helps me a lot to find friends or people that I can sell my pre-loved smartphones to. Everytime there's a new phone out, I tend to upgrade to the latest trends. I use the money I got from selling my old phone to purchase a new one. Facebook MArketplace is such a great site to find anyone that may be interested to it and I love it! "
