People You Know Have Stuff You Want: Community-Based Classified Ads Network Connects You to The Communities You’re Already a Part Of

Share Article

– Ad Communities today released a free service that both provides pre-built classified ad communities for cities and towns around the world and most US schools, and allows users to build and manage their own classified ads network for any business, church, neighborhood, or civic group. – Community parameters – membership requirements, security, ad categories – are defined by group members and maintained and enforced by the network, all through a very easy to use interface that requires no software to download, nor and previous computer programming or design knowledge.

Ad Communities: People you know...
Ad Communities lets you easily connect with any group to get what you need while also developing your own real-world networks, because these are people you already know or are very likely to run into again.

Using the newly-launched Ad Communities, individuals and groups gain a new level of control and safety when posting classified ads online.

Within Ad Communities there are two distinct kinds of communities:

1. At the town or city level, users will find pre-built communities for every municipality as well as any private school, junior high, high school or college near them. These are open to all local users by default, though a verified school official may request control of all administrative functions to add an additional safety factor for school-based communities.

2. At the organization level, anyone can create a community for their company, office building, dormitory, apartment complex, church or even a school’s PTA or any group of people sharing a common bond. User-created communities can be completely open and public, invite-only or can be locked down by requiring each subscriber to register an email address from a particular domain.

By creating a classified ads network that is fully customizable and controlled by local entities, transactions can be facilitated between people who already know each other and live and work within the same community.

"Maybe the guy you rode the elevator with this morning has the playoff tickets you’re looking for or the woman you parked next to would be able to carpool three days a week," said Sean Anderson, Ad Communities founder. "Ad Communities lets you easily connect with any group to get what you need while also developing your own real-world networks, because these are people you already know or are very likely to run into again. And when given the right tools and a measure of safety and security, we believe they've got plenty of things to buy, sell and share."

While the focus is on user-created communities, Ad Communities also has over 100,000 town and city-based communities developed worldwide, allowing users to reach a broader and more anonymous audience if they prefer.

Additionally, users can belong to as many communities as they’d like, with the universal Ad Communities interface allowing them to create an ad that will run in multiple communities in a single step, or to search or browse for what they’re looking for within a single organization, throughout their town, or around the world.

Launch-time languages include English and Spanish, with several additional languages ready for deployment soon.
