More about Ubokia:
Ubokia aims to transform online commerce through injecting a social element into purchases. It offers a more robust search (and quicker response time) than craigslist, less scammers than eBay and has the opportunity to be more community-centric than Amazon. They also rolled out a uTrust program that verifies its participants--further reducing opportunities for spams and scams.
Their pitch: create a (free and simple) account, post a want, sell items or browse what others want.
