Craigslist 101

Craigslist.org is a popular online community/website for local social networking. It includes local community classifieds and forums - a place to find jobs, housing, goods and services, social activities, romance, advice, community information, and just about anything else in a relatively non-commercial environment.

If you're new to Craigslist, there are a number of websites that provide information about using the site to sell products, promote businesses and services, generate leads and find employees, lease/rent housing and more. The first site you should review, however, is Craigslist's own help pages, which provide the details you need on how to post an ad, repost, reply, etc. The FAQs are especially helpful. Also be sure to check out craigslist blog, written by Craigslist CEO Jim Buckmaster.

If you do a simple Google search on Craigslist, you'll see that there is lots of discussion out there. For newspaper and magazine articles on Craigslist, do a Power Search on the library's Articles & More page.
