Switchboard is a community-building classifieds platform. On Switchboard, members of close-knit networks ask for what they need and offer what they have to give. There are only two types of posts: asks and offers. No photos, videos, status updates, spammy listservs, groups, pages, likes, events. Just useful information. Needs are met. Connections are made. Problems are solved. Communities are strengthened and thrive. It has been described as a private, non-creepy Craigslist; an online version of how people actually interact in the real world; a Facebook you would actually want to use; a place to share of ourselves, and not about ourselves.
