Craigslist Shuts Down Adult Services Section Across The Globe

Posted Dec 20, 2010

Online classifieds service Craigslist has shut down their adult services section across the world. Human trafficking groups have been proactively pressuring Craigslist to remove the adult services section for years now.

It appears that Craigslist recently took down the service in Canada, Asia, Europe, Africa, and South America. After removing the adult services section in the U.S., they had a sign that said “censored.” Backpage.com, a classifieds website owned by Village Voice media saw a spike in their adult services section ever since Craigslist shut down the adult services section in the U.S. this past September.
