Feb. 27, 2007 -- VFlyer, a San Francisco-based online-content and classified-advertising platform, has added new features that allow online retailers enhance classified ads with maps and embedded video, the company said Tuesday.

The platform now enables users to display a small video thumbnail within each ad, which expands to an embedded version of a video clip on YouTube and other video-sharing sites, the company said.

The service also supports Yahoo Maps mashups, so that vFlyer advertisers can easily place a graphical map within classified ads, the company said.
