  • 1. How Craigslist Works
  • 2. Introduction to How Craigslist Works I Craigslist.org, originally a San Francisco community electronic newsletter, is now one of the most visited English language Web sites, with local classifieds for more than 450 cities worldwide. The site's main function is to host classified ads that cover practically every category you can think of, including housing, job postings, items for sale, services and personals.
  • 3. Introduction to How Craigslist Works II Most ads include the member's e- mail address. Craigslist offers a function that masks e-mail so that members don't have to worry about their address being openly available. All transactions are between the person who posted the ad and the person responding to it.
  • 4. The Craigslist Network Each craigslist site focuses on a specific community. Originally, craigslist only listed classifieds and announcements within San Francisco. As the service grew in popularity, expanding well beyond founder Craig Newmark's original concept, craigslist added other cities to its network.
  • 5. Craigslist Financials I Craigslist started as a pet project but blossomed into a full-fledged company. In 1999, craigslist incorporated as a for-profit organization. The company also purchased the domain craigslist.com to prevent anyone from buying it and misleading craigslist members.
  • 6. Craigslist Financials II Newmark and Buckmaster strive to keep craigslist a service-based company focused on online communities. They have refused offers to sell the company for a huge profit.The site earns revenue by setting fees for job postings in a few cities and for apartment listings in New York City.
  • 7. Craigslist Controversy One of the biggest challenges for the craigslist community is weeding out scam artists. The site has a section describing common scam tactics and what users should do if they come across them. One scam that has popped up in several craigslist communities involves a buyer overpaying for an item.
