Oodle Teams With MySpace Canada to Address User Demand for Social Classifieds

Today I’m thrilled to announce the launch of MySpace Canada Classifieds http://canada.classifieds.myspace.com/, a new social classifieds service powered by Oodle.

Last year, we launched the MySpace Classifieds channel in the U.S. Since then, we’ve seen tremendous growth as more and more people are turning to social classifieds as a way to buy, sell and find things — from cars to guitars. We’re excited to work with MySpace Canada to bring social classifieds to a broader audience.

Because user profiles are linked to each listing (as opposed to anonymous IDs), there is inherent transparency in who you are selling to, trading with or buying from. These features make MySpace Canada Classifieds a safer environment and provide a more efficient way to connect buyers and sellers.

Users of MySpace Canada can also quickly spread the word about what they’re selling or share information about what they are looking for through MySpace bulletins and blogs. Every listing also has a forum for asking questions or sharing additional details about listing.

We’re thrilled to be working with MySpace Canada to broaden the appeal of classifieds by offering a safer — and more social — alternative for people to share their listings.

MySpace and Oodle: Two Weeks Later

Two weeks ago, we re-launched MySpace’s classifieds. The goal for the partnership was to create the best possible classifieds experience for MySpace users – local classifieds from all over the web mixed with the inherently social nature of MySpace. The results and responses from MySpace users have been phenomenal.

Check out some of the Best Of posts from MySpace users.

New MySpace Classifieds Powered by Oodle

The site is also more social: listings are linked to MySpace profiles – not anonymous IDs, and users can enlist their friends to help them buy or sell through MySpace bulletins and blogs.

We’re big believers that classifieds are a form of “social commerce.” Transactions start online, but they end in a face-to-face interaction and a handshake. In the coming months, we’ll be busy working with the MySpace APIs to make their classifieds experience more social and conversational…

Our partnership with MySpace also represents another important addition to the 200+ sites in the Oodle Network giving private sellers and advertisers such as Prudential the ability to easily reach a wide local audience with their listings.

Go ahead. Try out the new MySpace Classifieds and let us know what you think.
