Facebook, Google and the like may give you more “glitz” but you are going to pay for it with lack of being anonymous.
People who buy and sell stuff don’t want to bother with complicated sign ups, offers, buy-ins, and having to have their name and profile out there in the world.
WHAT Craigslist is selling matches perfectly with this concept. That’s why nobody will really usurp them.
It’s also interesting that Craigslist can make this money (off of…ads? Adult sales?), without having to take your information. And yet companies like Google and the like say they have to take your information to keep their product free…just wondering if they cut the fat…they probably wouldn't have to.
