Islamicfacebook.com, NaqaTube, imhalal.com and now Ilmpedia. These are all
Muslim sites based on well known 'western' social sites. Ilmpedia will be
an encyclopedia based mostly on Islamic sources. The article linked below
states that "websites like these are part of a growing trend of
Islamisation on the web". I ask myself, what the consequences of this
separatism from the 'western' websites are going to be. Will we have more
information sources with different povs, so that we will be able to form
our own opinions in a more balanced way; or will we have the opposite, one
stream fighting the other and strengthening biased povs even more? I wish
for the first, but I am not all too positive about it.
