You can also save the item to check it later if you have no time to check it now but have the interest to buy it.

it is worth to note that Facebook will not take responsibility if you fall into a trouble with buyer or seller or if someone decides to assault you and steal your item at the designated meeting place.

In India, this marketplace will surely hurt OLX or Quikr like services.
