Backpage is officially shut down
I purposely didn’t search the web for any news before I wrote this post. Reason being is becuase I basically know the deal and if you’re into free classifieds ads and marketing like I am then you’ll already know the history of Backpage.com. For those that don’t know know Backpage use to be a very popular website that somehow happen to finagle there way into being THEE classified go to place for all major newspaper outlets. I don’t know how the hell they hooked up that deal, they o Vjo half must be a smart group of people.
Which leads me to my point as to why I’m so fucking confused as to why they let prostitution and human trafficiding of minors (or anyone for that matter) take over their business. I work a lot so I don’t get the chance to watch tv much but when I do watch television one of my favorite shows is “American Greed.” I bet that what’s going on at Backpage would be a great fit for the tv program becuase if I had a website that was getting as much organic traffic as backpage I’d be doing a Craigslist move and set some heavy restricstions to the post that are allowed on the site.
I know you’re innkcient until proven guilty but I can help but think that this thing with Backpage.com being shut down was pure case of greed and letting money over come good judgement.
