Oodle partners with ForRent and AutoTrader (UK)

We believe that the future of online commerce is social. And by social we don’t just mean reviews and ‘like’ buttons — we mean being able to find your local companies online, talk to a real person, and see how you or your friends are connected to a particular business. This type of social commerce is bringing your online world down to the scale of your neighborhood. Instead of being this vast, anonymous place, the Internet can be friendly, scalable and social.

With these principals in mind we’re excited to announce two new partnerships — ForRent.com in the US and AutoTrader in the UK.  These partnerships will bring even more listings to our Marketplace on Oodle and Facebook, and introduce powerful social media tools to two industries that can really benefit from having a strong Facebook presence.

ForRent is the leading online apartment listings service in the US. Companies in the multifamily industry, by nature of their business, form a pretty personal part of their customers lives — people are searching for their homes after all.  Similarly, we’ve partnered with AutoTrader in the UK, where dealers will reach new customers through social media, while prospective buyers can talk to real people and compare listings with friends.

We’re very excited to begin working with these two new partners — both leaders in their respective industries.  Through these partnerships, Oodle is making online commerce a more open, social experience.
