Craigslist adults service replacement
The company did not immediately respond to a request for comment yesterday.
Yesterday, four anti-child-trafficking groups — the Polaris Project, the Rebecca Project for Human Rights, the FAIR Fund, and Courtney’s House — said adult pages remain active on Craigslist’s non-US Web pages.“That means that they do not have the same incentive or responsibility to police themselves nor are they held accountable for the ads on their site,’’ she said.
Globe spokesman Robert Powers said a third-party licensee allowed them to be published because the term “escort services’’ was not properly blocked as a category.
As soon as the Globe became aware of the problem, Powers said, it took down the directory, which will remain disabled for “a few weeks’’ while new filtering software is installed.
The decision cost the Weekly Dig “hundreds of thousands of dollars’’ a year in revenue, he said.“I’m not going to get on a soapbox and tell Craigslist or the Phoenix not to do this,’’ Lawrence said.
For years, Craigslist has been the premier website for scoring a free sofa or finding an available apartment (and sometimes white van scams), but there are now plenty of other free services that do an equally fine job, with a more attractive interface and fewer spam postings.
Once you’re signed up, you can simply snap a photo of the item(s) you’re trying to sell and set a price (or utilize the “negotiable” option).
You can similarly shop for items available on the site or app with its basic search tool and filtering options.
Additionally, Recycler pairs with a network of print publications dispersed throughout the country, allowing you to place the same ad online as in print circulation.
You can also keep an eye on specific items with the convenient “watch” feature.
If an item hasn’t sold in a few days, you might feel more comfortable asking someone to lower the price.
Letgo is one of the most user-friendly classifieds websites we’ve seen, and the mobile app—available for both Android and i Phone — is similarly straightforward and easy to use.
Unlike some of the other options out there, you do unfortunately need to create an account to use Letgo.
