Swinyx is a social classifieds service that was first initiated as a class project. The website is multilingual and lets you cross-post your listings on other social utilities such as Facebook and Twitter.
Swinyx emphasizes cloud computing by linking your YouTube account so that your public videos get accessible for you to present on your listing. The good thing with this is that you could include Google adsense advertisement to your videos and promote your stuff.
You could also link your Picasa’s public albums to your Swinyx account if you have lots of images for the items you are selling, you simply select the album you wish to display and it will show up as a slideshow on your postings.
On Swinyx, the user also has the choice to present his/her Skype or GoogleTalk status online to communicate with potential buyers by simply cliking on a button displayed on the seller’s listings to either call or chat.The seller has control over his/her settings to hide the online status. As an alternative, Swinyx provides its own Facebook-like chat for sellers and buyers to communicate
Swinyx displays Google maps and street views for Home or apartment listings to make it easy for its users. The website also links your Google calendar to your event listings.
The Website is Multilingual and allows you to type in your own language’s characters using the Google Virtual Keyboard Technology (currently in beta testing)
Swinyx lets you login using Facebook connect and Twitter connect
Finally, the user can create a dedicated profile page by simply adding a unique nickname in the settings. On the user profile are included information about the user, the items that he/she is selling as well as his/her wish list. The profile also contains the friend list of that specific user and links to send a Swinyx friend request to the user
