Kijiji vs Craigslist and the Sex Industry

February 13, 2010

Thanks to Jeffrey Overstreet who linked to a blogpost (on Facebook) about a section on Craigslist about which I knew nothing (Adult Services) in which sex trafficking is occurring!  I had no idea!

Read the post for yourself, but in short…

  • Craigslist allegedly allows sex trafficking to go on in its section called Adult Services and does nothing about it.
  • Kijiji intentionally does not have an Adult Services section on their website.

So if you’re looking to sell or buy something, and need online classifieds, consider using Kijiji instead of Craigslist.
