Facebook users will no longer be able to create vehicle and property/rental listings from a Facebook business page, parent company Meta has announced.

The Vehicles and Manage Inventory tabs are also being discontinued in markets where they are currently available, the company added. These changes will come into effect on Jan. 30.

“Free person-to-person listings for vehicle, property sales and rental listings will still be available on Marketplace,” added Meta in a message on Facebook announcing the end of the services. “The ability to reach audiences via ads is also not changing. We are simply changing how to distribute inventory.”

The affected markets for vehicles are the U.S., Canada, France, the U.K., Mexico, Brazil, Indonesia, Germany and Australia. For property sales and rentals, only the U.S. will be impacted.

Users will still be able to create Marketplace listings for vehicles and property sales and rentals from their personal profiles.

The withdrawal is part of Facebook’s wider retreat from verticalization: Just a month ago, the social network announced it was pulling Jobs on Facebook in the U.S. and Canada after a six-year run.
