What Is Craigslist?
Most community forums provide a place for people to chat, get to know each other, or share common interests. Craigslist is unique in that while it does offer a forum, it is also a place where people can promote and sell. Craigslist allows users to post classified ads to a community bulletin board. Most users can place ads free, although there are charges for certain services in certain locations.
The board on Craigslist.com hosts millions of ads and has billions of visitors every year. Sounds pretty exciting. As more and more people turn to the Web for their purchases, the ““List”” is rapidly becoming one of the most important places people bookmark. Remember, most ads placed on Craigslist are free. Even when you do have to pay for ads, usually you will pay far less than you would if you paid for an advertisement in a local paper (or national one). And, more and more people are using the Net to find what they need, whether they want to find a job, a new home, a new car or anything else.
