Rosario mentioned yesterday about the new service, Oodle classifieds for Facebook. Although Oodle is a new service, there are some alternative sites that have been around for college students to buy, sell, and barter. Several of these sites will give Facebook classifieds a run for it’s money – but Facebook’s enormous user base will be hard to contend with.
Chegg – Chegg (as in chicken and egg) started out as a site to buy and sell textbooks, but now have expanded to an online shopping site. You can browse items from numerous campuses and have them shipped right to your door. How is that for convenience?
CollegeMedium – This site is like a Craigslist for college students. CollegeMedium allows you to buy or sell items, look for a job, or even find your significant other. Its also based off of the Facebook API so you can log in with you Facebook user name and password.
College Classifieds – College Classifieds claims to be the “best and most accurate listings for your college campus.” The site is powered by Oodle, the same service that is supposedly supporting Facebook’s new classified service. College Classifieds supports RSS feeds so you can keep track of newly listed items.
DormItem – DormItem has a pretty basic layout, but is effective nonetheless. You can search through their site for items or keep up to date via RSS feed. With its massive database of classifieds, DormItem is the Google of college classifieds.
