Loquo

From Some Degree of transparency
Jump to: navigation, search

Loquo was a network of local online classifieds and community websites in Spain. The main categories were housing, goods for sale, community, personals, jobs, business services, local events and community discussion forums.

Loquo informed its users that no new ads would be published after the 30th June 2016. All active classifieds were deleted on the 31st July 2016, and the website was effectively shuttered.

History[edit]

Loquo.com was started in Barcelona in 2002 by Ubaldo Huerta and Lissette Lemus, as a clone of Craigslist.

Controversy[edit]

Loquo was acquired by eBay in May 2005 for an undisclosed sum. All listings were free up to that point. Afterwards, many sections were no longer free and some sections were discontinued, such as the personal ads. In addition, there have been numerous complaints from users about customer service.
