About Member-Created Content
There are many ways to express yourself on eBay. When you have something you want to share with the eBay Community, choosing the right tool to post makes all the difference. You can use one or all of these features.
If you want to post opinions, you should use:
It’s important not to use these opinion areas for feedback about a trading partner. Our Feedback system is designed to keep track of all comments related to transactions. Posting Feedback in other areas results in inaccurate Feedback scores.
When you want to share factual information, you should use:
When deciding what type of content you would like to create, first determine whether your content will be factual or your opinion. Then, decide whether you want to create content that is yours alone, or if you want to contribute content that belongs to, and is written by, the Community.
Refer to the following chart to select the appropriate content type.
Whichever you choose, you should cite reliable sources in your content whenever possible. Writing verifiable information helps members immediately and cuts down on the chance of it being edited or deleted by others.
The best way to feature all of the content you create is by featuring it on an eBay My World page. You can also promote yourself or your items by using content and the links from your blog, product descriptions, and entries in Guides on other places on eBay. For example, sellers can place links to their blog on their eBay Stores page, or buyers with expertise on collectables can direct members to a guide.
