MR NEWMARK

Craigslist is named after : recebeu o nome de... its founder Craig Newmark. He got his inspiration from sites like the WELL and MindVox, and he decided to create something similar for local events. In 1995 he began an email distribution list to his nerdy friends in the San Francisco Bay Area, telling them what was going on locally. The number of people following these posts grew rapidly and they started using the mailing list in different ways like looking for jobs.

A REAL JOB

Craig thought this was a nice “hobby” and he was happy to be invited to the best parties for geeks and nerds. In 1999 he realised, however, that the site was going so well that he could stop working. He quit his job as an engineer and started working for Craigslist full-time. It was a wise decision: today it is one of the world’s most successful sites.

HOW IT WORKS

Craigslist is easy to use: you just need a valid email address or a phone number to sign up. Then you are ready to research everything you want: enter your search word, how much you can pay, and, for example, whether you’re looking for something from a shop or a private person. You can also activate a Craigslist alert, so they can let you know when something comes up which is of interest to you.

PROBLEMS

Announcements on Craigslist are not monitored and this has caused problems. There was, for example, an “adult services section,” but this was used for a number of illegal activities, including child prostitution. The section was closed in 2010.
