We may also use standard Internet technology, such as web beacons or 1x1 "gifs" and other similar technologies (collectively "Pixel Tags"). A Pixel Tag is an electronic image, often a single pixel (1x1), that is ordinarily not visible to Members and may be associated with cookies on the Members' storage drives. We use Pixel Tags to track your use of the FFN Websites, for advertising, marketing, or promotional purposes, and to determine whether you opened an email message from us. The information also enables us to customize the services we offer.

I started at FFN in 2007, and since my first day here no two days are the same. One of the things I like most about working at FFN is that the environment is very dynamic and I genuinely feel like our opinions are heard all the way up to the CEO. We work in a very exciting industry and it becomes a part of your life. I started here with a plan of staying 6 months, and I just celebrated 9 years here. The people are routinely amazing to work with and FFN is more like a family than a place you come to work and leave.

I also urge you at the same time to signup to the Match.com Free Trial and see the difference in quality you will get. That way you can compare the dating sites. People on Match are way more committed to finding a long lasting relationship compared to the Plenty of Fish Dating Site. The message response rate at Match is much greater and they have one the best female to male ratios from any other dating site.
On November 13, 2016, it was reported that a database of usernames, e-mails, and passwords had been breached and leaked from Adult FriendFinder and other FriendFinder Networks websites. The breach included 300 million Adult FriendFinder user accounts, including account data for 15 million accounts that had supposedly been "deleted". The passwords had not been encrypted at all, or encrypted with the obsolete and insecure SHA-1.[24]

Objective, non-emotional answer: Where will past users of Craigslist personals now go? Probably OkCupid or Bumble. I think that these two platforms have very much established themselves as data-based, efficient modes of matching. As they have gained popularity over the past few years, I think that they have cut into Craigslist’s market share - since Craigslist is essentially just a newsgroup that doesn’t offer a whole lot of functionality. Accordingly, I don’t think that this closure will displace a lot of folks.
