Backpage Dating For Teens
Backpage.com was an online classified advertisements website that was established in 2004 as a rival to Craigslist by the alternative newspaper chain New Times Media/New Times Media (which would eventually become known as Village Voice Media or VVM). Backpage is an online classifieds website similar to Craigslist that enables users to post advertisements in a variety of categories, including automotive, personal, jobs, rentals, and adult services. It didn't take long for it to overtake Craigslist as the second most popular online classifieds site in the United States. As a result of pressure from state attorneys general and other opponents, Craigslist was compelled to shut down its "adult services" section in 2010. These individuals stated that the site enabled users to engage in illegal activities such as prostitution. Backpage emerged as the primary winner after the majority of the adult advertising market that had been hosted on Craigslist was moved to other websites. Former Craigslist detractors were compelled to turn their attention to Backpage, which had resisted efforts to regulate the site until January 2017, when it finally shut down its adult section ahead of congressional hearings.
