Khelafabook To Rival Facebook

Fact checked by The People's Voice Community

ISIS supporters have created their own Social Network site to rival Facebook – Khelafabook.

It was launched last night and it’s been registered to a Mosul address using Egyptian web servers. Khelafabook reportedly crashed as soon as it came online. Facebook and Twitter have closed numerous ISIS accounts recently. If the supporters of the network use it just for social networking and not as a ‘planning Tool’, then according to the report there is not much the U.S or others can do to stop them.

Khelafabook had the appearance of a normal social network, but had a photograph of the world with Isis logos posted over its countries as its background. It appeared to have been built on a platform called SocialKit, which anyone can download and use to make social networks of their own. The site appears to have been established to get round such bans. It was established by a man in the Iraqi city of Mosul — though he has registered his country as Islamic State — but is hosted in Egypt.
It looks very amateur — it has blank pages for its privacy policy and other important sites, and did not appear to have picked up many users before it was taken down. The address seems to have been bought from web page firm GoDaddy.
