    Research Uncovers Connection between Craigslist Personals, HIV Trends


    Entry of site in a community tied to 16% increase in HIV

    January 30, 2015

    Craigslist?s entry into a market results in a 15.9 percent increase in reported HIV cases, according to research from the University of Minnesota published in the December issue of MIS Quarterly. When mapped at the national level, more than 6,000 HIV cases annually and treatment costs estimated between $62 million and $65.3 million can be linked to the popular website.
    ?I actually think that the creators of Craigslist had no intent of harming society. They came in with good intentions,? says Jason Chan, Assistant Professor of Information and Decision Sciences at the Carlson School of Management. ?At the same time, they did not anticipate that users could use the features in an unexpected way with unintended consequences.?
