Muxlim Shuts Down, Promotes Biography

The Helsinki-based social network site aimed at the world's muslim community, Muxlim, has shut down and now points to DisruptionManifesto.com, a teaser page for founder Mohamed El-Fatatry's new biography authored by David Cord. I spoke on the phone with El-Fatatry who gave me this official statement on the shutdown of the social network: "The Muxlim vision will carry on in a new way moving forward, and all the details of the story will be published in the book: Mohamed 2.0 - Disruption Manifesto."

The book is set to come out March or April, which is when we assume the site will come back up. I imagine El-Fatatry has calculated the cost of alienating users to promote his book, so it will be interesting to see what tricks he has up his sleeve to bring them back in a couple months.
