Awwww… Facebook Alternative ‘Caliphatebook’ Goes Offline, Tinder Clone “Goatbook” Still Goin Strong

A site billed as the pro-Islamic State alternative to Facebook has been taken offline by its creators.

The 5elefabook website, whose name comes from the Arabic word for “caliphate,” replaced its front page on March 9 with a message announcing a “temporary shut down in order to protect the info and details of it’s members and their safety.”

The individuals or group behind 5elafabook also created a Twitter account, which was suspended on March 10. The site had created something of a buzz on Twitter, where some users referred to it as a “Salafi crowdsourced social site.”
