Craigslist has come a long way since it started out back in 1995, and
continues to thrive today despite competition from sites like
Gumtree and eBay.
Craigslist is not as fancy or complicated as eBay, it’s easier and
quicker to use. You don’t even have to “join” to post something for
sale, although there are some advantages to “joining” including
being able to “repost” an ad (which may save you time later).
Craigslist also has an active “community” who connect in the
“discussion forums”, and anyone can join those communities to
discuss like-minded issues and topics.
