Extra Credit

Craigslist is a site that people can go on to post things that they have that others may want. It’s all localized so you can do your search by your state and city. You can seriously find almost anything you want or need on here, and you can rid of stuff that you don’t want or need anymore. It’s way better than Ebay and sites where you don’t see the product until you’ve already paid for it.

So I don’t normally use Craigslist so often, I lately I’ve been checking it like 4 or 5 times a week. This is because I’m moving into a new place that is bigger then the one that I’m in now and I need inexpensive furnisher that isn’t cheap to fill it up.

This site is a great example of new media because it allows the users to decide what they want to post about and what they want to look at. People post jobs, personal ads, houses, even services (like new places to get beauty treatments done). There are tons of discussion forums for anything you want to talk about and there is even a craigslist blog. There’s also the socialization that occurs when you respond to ads and when you meet up with people to get what you need.

Kim McComas, replace blog grade please.
