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.[1] 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.
Created in 2007, Zoosk was among the first dating sites to integrate with social media networks, like Facebook and Google+, allowing for even faster sign-up. More than 40 million people have joined Zoosk, and more than 30 million have downloaded it via the App Store and Google Play. This is an active bunch as well — Zoosk members exchange more than 3 million messages a day on the site. Unlike with Yahoo+ Personals, you can leave your wallet right where it is because Zoosk doesn’t charge for any of the basic features, including the Carousel, SmartPick, and Insights.
What is a note about happy couples doing in a move made in response to a bill to fight sex trafficking? Well, this is the vast possibility and danger of Craigslist. For decades, it’s been the place where someone might find the perfect or most horrible roommate; a steal of a couch or total piece of junk; casual sex or even a spouse. One of my oldest childhood friends, for example, posted a Craigslist ad back in the mid-2000s and met her husband. Now they’re expecting their second child!
