Description

We investigated one of the biggest french classified website, Vivastreet, using data to show how prostitution was in fact one of its core businesses, on the verge of legality.

What makes this project innovative? What was its impact?

We were able to gather tens of thousands of ads to study their localisation, the fees payed for it, and lots of other datas, in order to establish the central role of the erotica classifieds and thus prostitution in this website
