The parent company (Various, Inc.) had difficulty finding venture capital due to the adult nature of its business.[5] In December 2007, the company was sold to the Penthouse Media Group for $500 million.[6][7] Penthouse later changed its name to FriendFinder Networks.[8] In October 2009, as part of an arrangement with The Kluger Agency, musician Flo Rida released a music video for his song "Touch Me" via Adult FriendFinder. A representative of the agency stated that it was "always great to combine a very sexy high octane record with a very sexy brand.[9]
In 1994, Andrew Conru created the first online dating site,[citation needed] WebPersonals. After selling that site in 1995, he launched FriendFinder.com, an early social networking site, in 1996.[3] Days after the site went live, Conru found that people were posting naked pictures of themselves and seeking partners for adult-oriented activities. As a result, Conru started Adult FriendFinder, which he described as "a release valve". FriendFinder has since established other niche dating sites, including Senior FriendFinder, Amigos.com, BigChurch.com, and Alt.com.[4]

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!

After starting and successfully selling the Internet’s first online personals site, WebPersonals.com, Andrew founded FriendFinder in 1996 which has grown to become the world’s largest online personals network. He served as CEO until December 2007 and again throughout 2014. He also founded Focalink Communications/AdKnowledge, the first company to centralize Internet banner advertising, Medley.com Ad Agency, one of the largest online affiliate networks, and W3, the first commercial website personalization software company. He received his Ph.D. in Engineering Design from Stanford University.
Obligatory sentimental preamble (and I don’t care if it gets me downvoted): As soon as I received the A2A notification from Darren Johnson on my phone, my heart dropped… and as soon as I clicked on the link and saw that this was, in fact true, I felt some kind of activity in my tear ducts. I wasn’t quite on the verge of tears. But like, 15% of the way to being on the verge? I haven’t been on Craigslist personals in years. However, I met my first love on Craigslist personals - and the way in which meeting someone on Craigslist is just so laughable to most people has always been somewhat of a running joke between us.
