Featured Community Networking Resource:
Craigslist (also known as Craig's List and Craigs List)

Craigslist includes hundreds of networking websites for communities in the U.S. and around the world. There are now over 300 craigslist sites in all 50 US states, and over 50 countries.

The Craigslist sites are loaded with classified ads and forums - they are places to to find jobs, housing, goods and services, social activities, romantic partners, advice, community information and just about everything else, all for free. The Craigslist web site says that it aims to "provide a trustworthy, efficient, relatively non-commerical place for folks to find all the basics in their local area".

Craigslist was started in 1995 by Craig Newmark of San Franscisco and by 2006 was getting FOUR BILLION page views per month. In fact, in 2006, it is the SEVENTH most popular web site on the Internet with more than 10 million users each month, more than 10 million classified ads per month, and over 500,000 job listings per month. In addition, topical forums contain over 40 million user postings. In 2004, Ebay bought a 25% stake in Craig's list.

A 2004 Boston Globe article about Craigslist said, "Craigslist has evolved into a phenomenal community resource. But it's one that worries other companies in the business of classified advertising: newspapers, magazines, and even other websites such as Craigslist brings in between $5 million and $10 million in revenue annually, even though the site doesn't sell any advertising, and charges for help-wanted ads only in three cities. (Craigslist's chief executive, Jim) Buckmaster, says the long-term goals are simple: 'We want to provide the Craigslist service wherever it is requested, wherever it is wanted, wherever it is needed.'"
