SF Startup Copious Is A Social Marketplace

A San Francisco startup called Copious has built an online marketplace that allows all buyers and sellers to link their Facebook identities. The idea is to make the online marketplace feel safer and allowing buyers and sellers to see how many degrees of separation the other party is in their network.

The user will also be able to see if anyone in their networks has purchased, shared, or commented on an item from the seller. Not only can Facebook identities be linked, but also Twitter accounts and blogs too, giving you a fairly well drawn picture that you aren’t dealing with a Nigerian scammer.

18 Year Old Killed From Craigslist Meetup

An innocent 18 year old from San Diego was killed after meeting “someone” on Craigslist to sell his computer for $600. Instead of an innocent meetup, three individuals showed up and murdered the 18 year old boy, stole his cash and cell phone. The three attackers are named Rashon Abernathy, Seandell Jones and Shaquille Jordan and each were charged as adults with murder and robbery. Each faces a maximum penalty of life in prison if convicted. San Diego Superior Court Judge Joseph Brannigan entered not-guilty pleas on their behalf and set the bail at $5 million for each of them.
