Craigslist pulled its Personals section in response to the combined Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act and the Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act that Congress passed back in March 2018. That law makes websites criminally and civilly liable for any misuse of personal ads by their users. The Missed Connections community lives on, though, under the Craigslist Community section.
Your search features are lousy. I would like very much to be able to search for a man within 50 miles who is in my age range. Why can't I do that? The men that you put on my recommendation list almost never even live in my city, which was a specification I provided. Most of them are from other cities and some of them are even from other states! And when you put me on their lists, I get mail from a bunch of guys who don’t live anywhere near me and it’s a complete waste of time. I think when you put just a picture and nothing else, especially the city and state they live in, there is no way we can tell if we are interested without opening the person’s entire profile and seeing where they live. You’re having us only judge them by their looks alone, and that is not how I judge a man. What a waste of time.
FriendFinder originally started as a mainstream social networking site when it was founded in 1996 by Andrew Conru, then a Ph.D. student at Stanford University. Over the next few years, the company quickly adapted to consumer preferences and branched out into over twenty different social media and dating-related verticals. In early 2005, the company merged with Cams.com, a live webcam model site, originally started by Lars Mapstead in 1999. Since then, Cams.com has become one of the largest providers of live model webcams in the world.
