Default Facebook?

Anybody ever put up a post on their own personal FB page asking if anyone had a place they would like hunted?

Looking for places to metal detect. Old home sights, farmland...
Any family heirlooms you keep, anything of real value we split.

Need help finding lost keys, jewelry, cellphone?
Feel free to contact me, no change.

I don't do FB, but I've seen someone posting on Craigslist for places to hunt with a "find your lost items" twist/lure.

I quit Facebook, no use for it really.
Except now it's the place to buy or sell a car for free
Craigslist charges $5.00

I have friend who does that and has been pretty successful getting permissions using FB and other venues like Nextdoor.

I tried that on the Nextdoor app. Like Facebook, but with all your neighbors. I posted twice with "lost jewelry? I'll find it!" message, and included pics of some gold jewelry I've found. With about 1,000 people in my network, I didn't get a single response.
