Kijiji USA is now eBay Classifieds

Kijiji was the second most popular free online classified ad listing website of the USA. Kijiji was acquired by the auction monster eBay years back. Now eBay willing to use their popular brand name to make their free classified site more popular has changed name of their free classified site. Kijiji USA is now named as eBay Classifieds. Note the incorporation of their brand name eBay into their classified site. Kijiji was a foreign language word which means village. US english speaking people was never familiar with this word. I guess this has made eBay to change the name to a more English familiar name.
eBay is already in legal feud with their mighty rival Craigslist. The main difference between two sites is that craigslist supports HtML ads while eBay Classifieds (formerly kijiji.com) is plain text based. Since the ads are plain text kijiji is much more spam free than craigslist.

The new eBay Classifieds has introduced a nice iPhone app found here http://bit.ly/ebcapp
If You Liked Kijiji, You’re Going to Love eBay Classifieds. It's more family friendly and controls spamming very strictly.

Although kijij is a worldwide network available in some other countries like Canada, Japan, Italy for the time being only Kijiji USA has been changed.
