Police in Sallisaw, Oklahoma said Misty VanHorn contacted a potential buyer via the social networking site.
They said the 22-year-old mother was looking to get $1,000 (£670) for her two-year-old, or $4,000 (£2,680) for the toddler and her 10-month-old baby.
“Just come to Sallisaw, it’s only 30 minutes away and I’ll give you all of her stuff and let y’all have her forever for $1,000,” she allegedly wrote via Facebook.
The unidentified female buyer from Fort Smith, just over the state border in neighbouring Arkansas, notified the authorities last week.
Police moved in to arrest her soon after.
Neighbours said VanHorn had been going door to door trying to raise the $1,000 bond money to free her partner for days.
