Muslim Brotherhood launches 'Islamic Facebook'
FROM BBC NEWS. CAIRO - Egypt's opposition movement, the Muslim Brotherhood, has launched its own Facebook-style social networking site.
A senior member of the banned Islamist group says the aim is to spread awareness of moderate Islamic values.
The Brotherhood's version - Ikhwanbook - looks similar to Facebook, but users say it respects Islamic values better.
It has more reserved use of photographs, less intrusion in the personal lives of members, and a different attitude to homosexuality.
The launch of the website is part of a wider attempt to increase the Islamic group's presence on the internet.
