Muxlim.com, a social network aimed at Muslims, is planning to launch an entire virtual world aimed at the global Muslim community. Currently, worlds like Second Life or MMOs are blocked in many Muslim countries, especially in the Middle East, because much of the in-world content and advertising is considered offensive. But with a global population of over a billion people, the Muslim community is one that brands like Coca Cola cannot afford to ignore, and the Finland-based Muxlim plans to capitalise on this.
