The latest findings from the Pew Internet & American Life Project confirm that rich young guys continue to dominate online sales, but that increasing numbers of internet users (with broadband) are selling online.
Oh – and despite the hype – Craigslist is not the only online classifieds site.
Results from Pew’s telephone survey indicated that:
“… those who sell things online come from all points on the demographic spectrum, but they are particularly likely to be male, in their 30s, relatively affluent and well-educated. They are also relatively intense users of the internet who have broadband connections and go online frequently.”
The release also notes that the top 5 classifieds sites in October, according to comScore Media, were:
Craigslist.org 8,236,000 unique visitors
Trader Publishing Company 7,468,000
Abracat Property 924,000
