Seems like Facebook Messenger has set out to be the professional matchmaker. According to Bloomberg, the app has announced a partnership with pro.com, which will help Messenger users find handymen in their area to assist them with home fixes.
Such developments should not come as a surprise. Only a couple of months ago, Facebook announced that the addition of a Personal Assistant feature to its Messenger platform, that helps users with their questions, using artificial intelligence and internet data.
So, right now, it would onle make sense if Facebook leveraged this feature, along with the professional database provided by pro.com, to offer its users a helping hand when it comes to fixing things around the house, along with information regarding charges and availability.

Although the details of the partnership have not been announced yet, it would be natural for the social network to make a cut out of each appointment completed. While Facebook offers the option to make payments between friends, it does not offer a e-commerce or wallet solution yet.
However, it’s not secret that Facebook has big plans for Messenger. Back in March, top execs revealed how they wish for the platform to become the bridge that connects users with brands and companies, offering information about shipping and tracking of orders and opening an active channel towards more effective customer service.
