Do You Like Craigslist? Try Expo

I`m personally not a bg fan of Craigslist, but I know millions of people are. So if you`re one of those people who likes Craigslist, you should check out Microsoft`s version called Expo.


Like Craigslist, Expo features a list of categories on its home page, which users can localize by ZIP code or city. Users may also search for specific items. When users post new listings, they are asked to tag their listing by ZIP code, and they may also include their exact address for advertising garage sales or for listing real estate for sale or rent. Then, when prospective customers click on the ad, they can see a satellite image of the home.
Now here`s what`s really cool about Expo. Expo users can choose to view only listings from people in their MSN Messenger contact list or personal e-mail groups. MSN Messenger users will see a pulsating star next to the name of anyone on their list who has recently placed a new item for sale on Expo or made a new posting on MSN Spaces, Microsoft`s popular blogging service.
