WHAT'S THE MEANING?
Backpage was launched in 2004 as a classified ad listing website. It became one of the largest in its field because of the variety of products and services found on their page.
DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that the FBI shut down Backpage on April 2018 because of its criminal involvements? Backpage earned more than $135 million in 2014 from ad placements. But the site was accused of allowing users to post classified ads about prostitution and human trafficking in their adult services section. The court refused to release critical documents but North Dakota Senator Heidi Heitkamp posted on her social media account that the website was taken offline and that "no child will be sold for sex through this website". In 2017, the US Supreme Court ruled in favor of the website in a case filed by three women who claimed that Backpage was involved in their forced prostitution. The SC said that the website was protected by the First Amendment and the Communications Decency Act. But an amendment of the CDA was passed by the Congress weeks in March 2018 and was sent to President Donald Trump's office, leading to the website's shut down a few weeks later.
The issue about Backpage's involvement in the controversy was highlighted in the documentary "I am Jane Doe", directed by award-winning filmmaker Mary Mazzio and Jessica Chastain. The documentary revolves around a group of American mothers whose daughters have been victimized by Backpage's adult classified section, and their fight to put the website down. Since its closure, there's been a lot of Backpage alternatives that existed. The need for a platform to find items to buy and sell caused users to look out for Backpage replacement sites.
