I've been working at FFN for the last 5 years starting out as a Marketing Intern and now a Business Development Manager. My time here has really been one of the most rewarding experiences within my professional and personal life. With the help of FFN and the school reimbursement program, I've been able to obtain my bachelor’s degree in International Business and I will be starting my MBA classes this upcoming year! To add onto this year, I also had my first child and my second family, “the FFN family” has been phenomenal in supporting and understanding the major life changes that has impacted me. Best company ever!
The parent company (Various, Inc.) had difficulty finding venture capital due to the adult nature of its business. In December 2007, the company was sold to the Penthouse Media Group for $500 million. Penthouse later changed its name to FriendFinder Networks. 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.
Good question. I miss the m4m. I don't consider myself gay and want nothing to do with another man on a personal level but, I have a fetish that is hard to satisfy without being able to simply scroll down a list of horny strangers and try to get them to cum in my mouth. I don't know if its a blessing or a curse to not have thus resource any longer.

In 1994, Andrew Conru created the first online dating site, WebPersonals. After selling that site in 1995, he launched FriendFinder.com, an early social networking site, in 1996. 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.

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.
