New Islamic "Facebook" to Strengthen Global Muslim Unity

[Tages-Anzeiger] A strictly Muslim-focused social network called Salamworld is set to launch this summer, during Ramadan. The Turkish-based company is thinking big: 50 million users in three years, all interacting in a worldwide - and sex free - "umma."
It's not as if the Net didn't already have plenty to offer Muslims. Mail-order companies, for example, offer two-piece amira hijabs for about $9, and black, embroidered abajas, tailor-made, for girls under 10, for around $30. Other sites sell meat butchered to Islamic specs - halal meat, a principle that has now become an election campaign topic in France.
