While tobacco and alcohol sales were already prohibited on Facebook Marketplace, as of this week, the new policy will also prohibit all private sales, trades, transfers and gifting of alcohol, tobacco products and e-cigarettes on Facebook and Instagram. According to CNN, any businesses that post content related to alcohol and tobacco will have to restrict content to people aged 18 and above. “We are updating our regulated goods policy to prohibit the sale of alcohol and tobacco products between private individuals on Facebook and Instagram,” said a Facebook spokesperson in a statement. “Our commerce policies already prohibit the sale of tobacco or alcohol in places like Marketplace but we’re now extending this to organic content.”
