Craigs list adult dating
After pressure from a few US States and their Attorney Generals, they changed the category name to "adult services" on May 13, 2009.The reasoning was that the "erotic services" board was being used for prostitution and sex trafficking.There was too much criticism that these categories facilitated prostitution and sex trafficking, and the risk of too many people getting hurt.As of just recently on March 22, 2018, Craigslist has completely shut down their Personals section, entirely in response to a newly passed bill: Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act (SESTA), which removed Section 230 protection for services knowingly involved in illegal sex trafficking.
This information is shared with social media services, sponsorship, analytics and other third-party service providers. There were millions of reasonable folks out there who used Craigslist's dating services who were not involved in criminal activity.Unfortunately, they are now suddenly left out cold in the rain and must now find an alternative.Craigslist hosted one of the earliest and most popular personals services on the internet, which is still widely used today.
However, this service did not come without some major controversies over the years.
We will also explain the cause of why Craigslist shut down their dating and personals section, some history behind it, and why you may still have some luck using our site (Lets Hang Out.com) instead.
