Many even having a social media into the thousands on Twitter and Facebook its no doubt that this is a whole competitive field in it of it self. One Example of a high Social Media presence and even interaction is Carawaks, which has 1,759 fans on Facebook and Claja which gives prizes of value to its Facebook fans.
Criaglist might be the king but nothing is more interesting than watching these Caribbean classifieds compete and time will tell who prevails and who doesn’t.
