Finally, you’re ready to get rid of that old Yamaha keyboard or part ways with an adored iMac — the one with the Dalmatian pattern. There are plenty of sites where you can sell your used goods online. But if you prefer selling your old merchandise to people who you know will benefit from them, join Shook.co.
Shook.co is a social marketplace where you can sell your used belongings online to Facebook friends. The site lets you auction second-hand items (and new ones too) and have your friends and their social networks compete over it. All you have to do is list the item, describe it, take a picture of it, and explain its condition. Then sit back and let the bidding begin!
Shook’s story exemplifies social shopping at its best — bringing together trusted friends as sellers and buyers, while creating a forum where they can recommend purchases and share their buying experience.
