Microsoft’s new classified product, Live.com Expo, has started to roll out additional beta testers.
Expo is centered on the idea that people will trust others within a group, and so is allowing classifieds networks within groups. Users can choose to search classifieds just within their immediate instant messaging buddies, or within an email group (such as anyone with a boeing.com email address), or “everyone”. This week they added all University of Washington students to Expo, and Garry Wiseman, who is leading the project, tells me that more are on the way. There is no set date yet on when Expo will be live to everyone.
Additional screen shots are below. I also included a basic screen shot in my last post on Expo.
