Are there any restrictions on what it can be about?

Other than that its up to your imagination !

Is my marketplace really part of my website ?

Yes, your marketplace runs in your website inside one of your website pages. You can easily tailor the look and feel to make it fit right in.

Your marketplace talks to the YouStak data servers, where the information is securely held just like your website would talk to google maps or other cloud plugins.

Can Items be posted to facebook ?

They click the Facebook button and then write what they wish... the post includes the item image and a direct link back to that item in your marketplace.

Can marketplaces be personal ?
