Seeking popularity of social media network Facebook, now Islamic State (IS) supporters have also launched their own network ‘Khelafabook’ to promote their cause.

The site looks amateur and was de-linked after it was discovered on Tuesday night.

Observers believe that the site was created with an attempt to improve communication between ISIS and its supporters especially after facing the ban from Twitter and Facebook.

According to reports, Twitter after seeing the negative propaganda by ISIS shut down as many as 90,000 accounts.

In terms of appearance, Khelafabook looks like any other website but has a logo of ISIS on the picture of world.

The site has been built on a platform called SocialKit, which can be downloaded easily.

The man behind the website resides in the Iraqi city of Mosul, however, he has registered his country as Islamic State — but is hosted in Egypt.
