Everyone needs a hobby. For most reporters, it seems to be freaking out about anything even vaguely ISIS-seeming.
That’s where CaliphateBook comes in, which is supposed Facebook, but for ISIS. Cute, right?
The site itself started as an incomplete CMS site, then crashed, (attacked by Anonymous, according to some) and now merely posts a single English-language message denying ties to ISIS.
The registrar information from the site claims the site administrator is in “Mosul, Islamic State.” That anyone can put anything they want in their registrar information seems to be lost on most. While it’s impossible to conclusively disprove that this site is even a thing, the fact that it was registered at GoDaddy certainly points toward it being a hoax.
