Toronto – MySpace Canada, the leading social portal in Canada, today announced a new social classifieds service called MySpace Canada Classifieds. Powered by Oodle, MySpace Canada Classifieds offers users a safe – and social – marketplace to buy and sell products and services within their trusted group of friends for free.
Through MySpace Canada’s social networking framework, users are able to easily share information about what they are looking for with their friends through MySpace bulletins and blogs. Because user profiles are attached to each listing, MySpace users get a better understanding of who they’re 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.
“The growing prevalence of social networking sites such as MySpace Canada has enabled a new type of online classified service to emerge. By partnering with Oodle, MySpace Canada has reinvented traditional classified services and created a safer and more social marketplace for users to buy, sell or trade items, on a local or national level,” said Susan McGill, Executive Director, Sales, Marketing & Business Development, MySpace Canada.
“Online transactions depend on trust, and by allowing users to understand who they are selling to and buying from, MySpace can help lift the veil of anonymity that can some times cause anxiety for any of the parties involved. This is the next level of online classifieds which will give users a great experience in a trusted environment of people they know,” continued McGill.
“As a leader in this market, we are constantly innovating and evolving the classifieds experience for our users, ensuring that these transactions can take place with confidence,” said Craig Donato, CEO of Oodle.” We’re thrilled to be working with MySpace Canada to develop a truly unique service that leverages the social aspects of MySpace.”
