eBay attempting its own Craigslist

eBay, which actually owns a 25% stake in Craigslist, has quietly rolled out their own version of the classified site. Called Kajiji (Swahili for “village”), it offers classified ads in 220 cities, and will have the usual cars, real estate, antiques, adult section, and pets. Craigslist, though, is not worried: Says chief executive Jim Buckmaster, “One of the beauties of viewing our world through public service goggles is that there is no need to worry about what other companies are doing.”
