Backpage is a classified advertising website launched in 2004. In 2011, Backpage was the second largest classified ad listing service on the Internet in the United States after Craigslist.. authorities in 2018, it offered classified listings for a wide variety of products and services including automotive, jobs listings, and real estate.Prostitution is illegal throughout the United States, except for some counties in Nevada.
They also say Backpage "encourage[s] dissemination of child sex trafficking content on its website".
They say Backpage is much slower in removing ads that advertise children than ads placed by authorities aimed at trapping traffickers, guides traffickers in creating false pages for underage children, instructs traffickers and buyers on how to pay anonymously, and makes it easier to make adult posts than other posts.
Most of the criticism has centered on the charge that Backpage is used to market minors (i.e.
underage sex trafficking), and that they contribute to a surge of prostitution in areas that they operate.
