FaceGlat May Be a More Modest Facebook But It's Not Hacker-Proof

FaceGlat, the ultra-Orthodox social networking site, is an attempt to offer Haredi Jews the experience of Facebook without all the immodesty. From the opening page it reminds one of public restrooms with a sign for men to enter through one door and women to enter through their own door. FaceGlat's name is a mashup of Facebook and glatt, the term for kosher meat considered to be a higher standard of kosher because of the source animal's smooth lungs.

The ultra-Orthodox version of Facebook gets hacked by Palestinian hackers from Jordan for the second time.
