Thousands are flocking to the 'Christian Facebook'

Thousands are flocking to the 'Christian Facebook'

Facebook is great for keeping up with friends and family, but with more than 1.4 billion users there's plenty of room for questionable content like racy pictures and videos, swearing and more. Instead of blocking people and tweaking privacy settings, more than 100,000 people have abandoned the social media giant for something being called "sin free Facebook."

The site is called Facegloria and it was launched last month by a group of Evangelical Christians in Brazil. Instead of a "Like" button there's an "Amen" button. There's no sexy content, no violence, no swearing, and (it claims) no sinning.

Sound good to you? Don't leave Facebook just yet because you'll have to wait a little bit longer to join. The site is currently only available in Portuguese, but more languages are in the works.  Web designer Atilla Barros told AFP:

"Our network is global. We have bought the Faceglory domain in English and in all possible languages. We want to take on Facebook and Twitter here and everywhere," he said.

It's an ambitious proposal, but with 100,000 users joining in one month, the potential is definitely there.

In the meantime, if you use Chrome, you can have it translate the page for you if you want to register and poke around. Click here to visit Facegloria.
