Find swap, barter and trade groups on Facebook by entering the postal code or city or town of interest followed by the words "swap" or "trade." A drop window displays the area groups indicating the number of members in each one. It also suggests similar groups in nearby areas.
Join the group by clicking the Join Group button. The administrator of the group is responsible for approving members, usually within 24 hours. Facebook suggests comparable groups in the right-hand sidebar, including those with more specific and individualized focus such as clothing or cars. The private message option is used to complete transactions and arrange meet-up details.
