New Website Seeks to Draw Previous Users of Craigslist and Backpage
Earlier this year, Backpage, a popular classified-ad webpage, was suddenly seized by the United States' Federal Bureau of Investigation. A few days later, Craigslist, another similar website, promptly shut down their "personals" section. The reason? Critics argued these listing websites helped facilitate sex trafficking, particularly of women and minors; they said you could buy anything from a couch to a rental unit to sex.
