Craig list started early, and maybe the only want ad available when they built up their data center(one server).
This website has no customers wanting to buy. So it can only make a list of available goods and use Twitter as a lead in with a webpage address. This hosting service had to make its subdomain name much shorter and webpage number shorter. to do many lead ins
Now, you can see that telco has the local customers listed. And if they have a data center, they can offer a network of customers for your want ads. Telco data center is the future cloud computing centers. Microsoft data centers with sharepoint customers are merely private networks without new customers, and never can reach any customers already listed in telco data centers.
So, its clear that hosting services has to tailor their subdomain names to fit into Twitter's 140 word limit. And offer a functional upload of a twit? Many operating system which has text editors had to have a functional upload feature for a twit, even if you are in a telco data center want ad?
This website is crawled by major search engines, but the subject matters are too restrictive for the general public. We are not even for the general public on linux. We are only servicing a few tiny Linux distros, which may or may not be compatible with many computer peripherals.
So, we are doing a number of off topic subjects, but keep focused on computer technology, architecture, and software architecture as well for parallel processing of huge data capacity.
In preparation of getting popular, maybe. But only if we know how to write words that public wants to search for some results. Getting customers are hard, Facebook is a total failure when people only find out no one stays with friends. Friends come and friends gone, no common interest. We are doing common interest subjects? Twitter on the other hand are short subjects of common interest, you can build up an audience. Making money is popular there.
Would you write something that helps you make money here? To make this subdomain a popular hangout? Of course not, If you can make money, why share it with the public. Go do it?
Want ads make money, if you write it for yourself. Craig list got it good and it became a big social network. Ebay too. Have you spend time at a flea market?
The trouble with a list of classified is that you do not have feedback.
There are criminals on craiglist to kill listers by luring them to a place of danger.
Forums are better and perhaps safer to use feedback and known data on the buyer and seller. Products and some services maybe delivered by post office.
