Craigslist dating stories
People trying to get technical positions filled found that the list was a good way to reach people with the skills they were looking for. User demand for more categories caused the list of categories to grow.
The personals section of Craigslist is broken down into nine main categories (women seeking men, men seeking women, etc.) and two other categories (miscellaneous romance and adult services). Craigslist is known for being a free and easy-to-use classifieds website, making it a popular website.” Craigslist can actually be a pretty good online dating vehicle, so I’m going to show you an ad that got me over 50 responses, 10 dates and ultimately landed me a short-term girlfriend. You mean I have to pretend to like your floofy poodle/chihuahua/norway rat mixed breed long enough to maybe earn some kisses?Not only that, this ad made it onto The Best of Craigslist. Or that huge mastiff that’s physically capable of kicking me out of your bed?It became a web-based service in 1996 and expanded into other classified categories. Having observed people helping one another in friendly, social, and trusting communal ways on the Internet via the WELL, Mind Vox and Usenet, and feeling isolated as a relative newcomer to San Francisco, Craigslist founder Craig Newmark decided to create something similar for local events.In early 1995, he began an email distribution list to friends.Every month Craigslist (not just the online personals section) gets more than 20 billion page views from over 50 million users in the United States alone.
This results in 40 million classified ads being posted every month.

Craigslist first started as an email list for events in San Francisco in 1995 by Craig Newmark.
In almost 15 years this classifieds website has grown to become the seventh largest English language website.
Most of the early postings were submitted by Newmark and were notices of social events of interest to software and Internet developers living and working in the San Francisco Bay Area. The number of subscribers and postings grew rapidly.
