Dirty Internet Secrets: Where Craigslist is, there is a higher incidence of HIV
The Craigslist Web serves people to promote, mediate and exchange experiences and opinions. Even worse, Craigslist is starting to connect people, but also an increase in HIV infection.
In craigslist, founded in 1995 by Craig Newman in San Francisco, everything is basically located. Originally, the service originated as a space where people knew what was going on in the Sanfrancisco Bay area.

Chan also mentioned his shock of Craigslist's sexually-oriented ads.
University teams researched Craigslist ads from 1999 to 2008 in thirty-three countries. Their research has shown that the spread of HIV is not associated with sex offers from experts and experts. According to Kana, HIV spreads through sexuality in the gay community. It's logical because Craigslist came to the world in San Francisco, which in general and genuinely pays homage to homosexuals.
