More than 5% of Gumtree listings now have a Skype Button
[Gumtree](http://www.gumtree.com) is a UK-based classified ads and community site. Started just over six years ago, they now have more than 1.4 million monthly visitors.
They told me that they now have a Skype button on more than 5% of their listings. Here’s what they added…
> Users that you would expect are certainly using Skype — landlords, plumbers, sellers, daters etc. But interestingly, a large chunk of the Gumtree community are using Skype to provide language tuition (see [this](http://www.gumtree.com/london/37/5455837.html) and [this](http://www.gumtree.com/london/91/4950391.html)) or free language swaps (see [this](http://www.gumtree.com/london/40/4964240.html) and [this](http://www.gumtree.com/london/73/4937173.html)). Generally, a very successful implementation and great value added for our community.
