Craigslist

Craigslist

A website of classified ads and community notices that serves an urban area. It was started in 1995 in San Francisco by Craig Newmark and has since spread to hundreds of cities in more than 50 countries. Listings are free, but job and rental postings in major cities are paid. For more information, visit www.craigslist.org.

Old Fashioned and Thriving
Instead of a glitzy home page with animations, banner ads and eye candy, craigslist home pages are mostly columns of text. However, Newmark's philosophy of keeping things simple has caused Craigslist to rival eBay and Amazon in number of online users wanting to buy and sell. While eBay and Amazon are public companies with thousands of employees, Craigslist is a private company with less than three dozen. See Angie's list.
