Facebook starts rolling out dedicated online shopping section

Facebook Inc. is adding a new shopping section to its main app, part of a broader push to capitalize on the increase in online shopping in the midst of the Covid-19 coronavirus outbreak.

The new section, Facebook Shop, begins rolling out across the U.S. on Tuesday. It lets people browse product catalogs from businesses and purchase items on the social network.

The company was previously testing the section with a small group of U.S. users, and launched a similar feature on its Instagram photo-sharing app last month.
