LiveJournal.com, the largest online blog hosting platform, and OLX, popular global online classifieds site have launched a co-branded classifieds channel at LiveJournal.com. This channel will expand functionality and increase convenience of LiveJournal for its users.

LiveJournal already has a variety of communities which help users to sell, buy and exchange certain types of goods. Now LiveJournal users will have a dedicated platform for such activities. LiveJournal has created a new "Classifieds" section (http://www.livejournal.com/classifieds), which offers full-featured OLX functionality and access to the entire OLX Classifieds database with over two million listings. The new section lets users publish classifieds not only in communities, but also in categories covering particular kinds of goods and services. Classifieds created by LJ users will be automatically added to the OLX database.

“LiveJournal is based on interaction between users, exchange of information, opinions and moods. Classifieds posting service will smoothly expand formats of such interaction. We welcome the opportunity to work with OLX, especially taking into account that OLX and LJ are international projects. Our cooperation will let us provide new opportunities for LiveJournal users worldwide,” said Boris Ovchinnikov, LiveJournal Russia general manager.
