eBay and Craigslist


Hmm, sounds like eBay has bought a 25% stake in Craigslist. I wonder what this means about the businesses eBay sees itself involved in in the future (classifieds?). As a recruiter,  I would hate to have to list my open positions on eBay in the future. Something about that just seems a little wrong ; )

  1. I’m sure i’m pessimistic and it’s only a 25% share but to me eBay buying Craigslist rings the upcoming death of this list in the future…

    Not that ebay is evil. But i’m sure the list won’t keep its simple and easy format, which i think is what actually attracts so many users…

    I agree, this is definately the end of Craig’s list. I think what also attracts people is the free nature of the product, for the most part.
