It allows it’s users to connecting with other users who have similar interests while sharing rewarding experiences with its open classifieds system.
The site’s localized functionality lets users hook up with people in their location. It is open for all people with Straight and Gay sexual orientations, and is arguably the most suitable replacement for Craigslist Personals. Let’s talk about some of the key points we have taken from our research on Doublelist.
Safety And Prohibited Content
Doublelist is doing a pretty good job of vetting members and posters. As expected, Doulbelist does not accept underage individuals. All members must exceed the age of 18. The site strongly warns its members against producing content that promotes the under-listed;
- Hatred and Abuse such as racial discrimination or other forms of harassment.
- Prostitution, or offering fees for sexual activity and any other form of commercial activity.
- Sharing private information that does not belong to you.
- Stalking or lying and impersonation such as Providing false information and using misleading photos on your profile.
- Child pornography, bestiality (animal cruelty), bondage (degradation) and incest

After being touted to take over from Craigslist Personals; a lot of users have criticized it for its strictness and intolerance to a lot of proclivities that was permissible on its predecessor.
Doublelist has also been criticized for its sizeable number of spam accounts, a bane of many hookup sites. But it is good to note that the site is young and is working to solve some of these constraints. Some section believe it is not user frienDoublelisty, since there is a prohibition on the extreme usage of vulgar information. Such as;
- Members are not allowed to make posts that contain certain censored words such as suck or cock or titties.
- Members are also not permitted to post real photos of their genital parts.
We believe that the platform is only taking these measure to to avoid running in with The House of Representatives’ FOSTA (Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act of 2017); a major reason why Craigslist Personals got shut down in the first place.
The ad-based hookup site is out to promote a community where individuals can relate the full spectrum of their sexuality with tolerance, and without prejudice or the fear of judgement.
