'Islamic Facebook' to offer alternative social network

The social networking giant Facebook has begun its investor roadshow ahead of its planned multi-billion dollar stock market launch in New York later this month.

The buzz created by the social network phenomenon has prompted others to try their hand in a potentially highly lucrative industry.

The BBC's Jennifer Pak reports from Malaysia - a key market for the new site - on what Salamworld is all about.
