Loquo is a network of local online classifieds and community websites in Spain, similar to Craigslist in the US. The main categories are housing, goods for sale, community, personals, jobs, business services, local events and community discussion forums.
Loquo.com was started in Barcelona in 2002 by Ubaldo Huerta and Lissette Lemus, as a clone of Craigslist.
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.
As of July 2006 there are Loquo sites in more than 25 cities in Spain.
