A Case Study of Exploitation in the Digital Age

Though the OnlyFans online social platform became wildly popular in early 2020, it has been around since 2016. This rapid rise to fame corresponded with the 2020 COVID-19 widespread shelter orders and layoffs that disproportionately impacted young people employed in the service industry. By November of 2020, OnlyFans’ revenues for the year were $400 million, up 540% from 2019.

Today, OnlyFans is a household name, and a debate rages on about how the platform will be held accountable for exploitative and abusive content bought and sold on the site.
