As promised, we're launching more and more new cities for users to post in all the time. As of today (7/31/09), we've expanded even further into parts of Arizona, Canada, California, Florida, Oklahoma, Massachusetts and South Carolina, to name a few. We feel that this will not only serve the members of those communities well, but will also help our national advertisers reach even more users. The newest markets launched as of today (7/31/09) are:
South Coast, MA
Cape Cod, MA
Hilton Head, SC
New Brunswick, Canada
Sierra Vista, AZ
Ft. McMurray, AB
As per user request, we're working on a lot of new markets over here, so you can expect to see more and more popping up on the homepage, as well as on this blog. New markets on the homepage are noted with red "(new)" text next to them.
More than anything, we rely on our community for input and suggestions. If your city isn't on the homepage, send an email to carl at backpage dot com (format as email@example.com) and tell me about it!
