Craigslist was founded by Craig Newmark and it first began its operations in 1995. In its early stages, Craigslist operated as an email distribution list to friends. It was confined to featuring events of San Francisco Bay Area. In 1996, it became a web-based service which stretched to other classified categories. In 1999, it was incorporated and by 2000, it went on to serve other cities of the US. Currently, Craigslist is now operating in 570 cities of 50 countries. It is available in English, French, German, Dutch, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese. It has more than 30 employees with Jim Buckmaster as its CEO.
