Google is the the King of Search, Big Dog. No doubt about that.Google is good for finding information about anything while FaceBook is good only for finding in-depth information from friends, family, and friends of friends. Craigslist is pretty awful and in my opinion, isn’t especially easy to search.

Quite proud to say that I've never used Facebook or Craigslist!

you're missing out, buddy.

this is so unfair! you are comparing apples (google) to oranges (CL/facebook).

Google wins hands down, because it helps you with pretty much everything. but try finding an apartment through google. you will fail, whereas CL is great for things like that. I've found a free, lightly used AC that I've been using for 2 years now, sold books, found subletters for our apt, found our apartment! all sorts of things through CL where google would fail. BUT I still gave my vote, because it is helpful in more/different ways

What you people are missing is that Google has some pretty close substitutes like Yahoo or MSN, but there's no substitute for Craigslist.

I should've put up Wikipedia as an option too, my bad.

I agree with you that there is no substitute for Craigslist especially if you are living in cities with an active Craigslist community where your sale ads are likely to be seen by thousands of potential buyers but If you live in a region such as South Carolina where Craigslist is not widely used in, than your items might not sell. You have to rely on ebay or amazon or local site.
