Facing Bans From Social Networks, Islamic State Starts Its Own - Digits - WSJ

Signs of the times

"As they face regular bans and account suspensions from online media platforms like Facebook and Twitter, supporters of the Islamic State militant group have now decided to start their own social network.

Enter 5elafabook.com, a Facebook-style knockoff site that appeared on the web for a brief period earlier this week before being shut down (the Twitter account linked to it has also been suspended). A message on the website homepage now says the shutdown is “temporary” to protect its users information and safety."
