Though people have got many options to do so if we specifically talk about. Backpage then you might find this word a little new. But let me confirm it to you that not only the word is old but is also one of the popular ways of representing classified adds.
Backpage was a classified advertising website that became the largest marketplace for buying and selling products and even sex. This was the reason it became a checkpoint for the federal law enforcement agencies resulting in the size of the use of backpage in 2008. But not only was sex which was being classified there were many more things like musicians. But it became a mode of human trafficking thus it was banned.
The starting if backpage was not like this. Moreover, backpage were used to give news feeds and were began to be known as village voice media. And soon enough it laid its roots in the grounds of classified. People began to use it for the purpose of selling and purchasing of various things like new age services and many more. In united states, it grew its popularity at that level where it became the second largest online classified site.
People began to use it and its craze among the people grew day by day which led to many positive as well as negative works. Issues began and the federal law enforcement agencies took steps to measure the misuse of the site but eventually ended up in banning it.
Though in current there are many websites which provide the facility of classified advertising services we can never compare it to the 2nd largest ad agency of the United States. Though it was banned many more classified advertising service providers rose in the world. Some of them can be identified by the names like OLX, Quicker and websites like Amazon are providing classified services to sell and purchase products.
The websites are secured by harmful kinds of stuff and strict actions are taken. A check is being kept on the data desired to be served to the public. Any 18+ or adultery related stuffs are still banned to be represented as classified advertisements. If we talk about different options available i.e. the new websites which have replaced the previous backpage then we can come to the following sites.
Olx has become one of the famous platform available to general public that too easily accessible without any compromises. People who want to sell their products make an account on the website that too free of cost and by going on sell option provide their advertisement with or without photos of their products according to their comfort. They even give their price and even the buyers can talk through the website to the seller to get more knowledge about the product, check the condition and even negotiate the price money if possible. The website also provides advertisements related to job offers on the basis of full time, part time and even home-based conditions.
Quickr is also famous for advertisement services and is just like olx. This website also provides free of cost services just like olx and also provide buying and selling facility exactly in the same manner.
Though these sites have become popular and secure everything provided on the internet is not authentic. People who do fraud and even cheat people by playing with the emotions and mentally and physically teasing them exist even on these sites.
One needs to be aware of the dealers and deal face to face if possible. Though there are no adultery or other sexual stuff available still cases of frauds are common and can’t be checked by the website. This is the part where we users have to be aware of.
