Muslim Social Network Site To Build Virtual World (Muxlim via TechCrunch)

Muxlim.com, which bills itself as the Muslim world's largest online community, has recently announced plans to build a muslim-oriented virtual world similar to Second Life according to TechCrunch. The intent behind the world would be to tap into Muslim-focused advertising revenues for a medium, i.e. virtual worlds, that is blocked in many Islamic countries due to "objectionable" content.

The current Muxlim social network site is also fairly robust with options to post and share videos, files, blog posts, polls and forums. Much of what I saw was in English and the site has offices in Finland and the UK. Below is an advert for Muxlim that gives a sense of the style of the site.

I just want to thank you for using Mloovi, and penning a couple of fine blog entries.

Mloovi is still very much a work in progress right now, and a labour of love. We're currently snagging some site problems, and expect a proper launch soon.

Keep watching!

Best wishes!
