One good thing leads to another, and eBay Classifieds with Facebook and Twitter leads to success. After using eBay Classifieds iPhone app or the homepage to upload an ad, you wish even more people could see your listing. Wish no more because once you confirm your ad via your email you are given an option to add your eBay Classifieds ad to your Facebook page, Twitter account and several other social networks!
Our goal of being your preferred free, friendly and local classifieds site is that we want to have your ad in front of as many eyes as possible. Facebook and Twitter are a direct link to people you know, which is a great audience to let know your little one has outgrown the crib you so lovingly purchased a few years ago and is available to a new home.
Speaking of Twitter…only 140 characters and there’s so much to say! Have you ever wondered how people can get so much information into such a small space? Aside from making up and abbreviating words, a service to shorten URL’s comes shining through: bit.ly shortens, shares and tracks your links for your Twitter updates.
