Facebook Clone Briefly Appears In North Korea

StarCon has now been take down after being hacked

A copy of Facebook, called StarCon, appeared briefly on the internet in North Korea, before being removed after it was hacked from outside the country. StarCon was discovered by Doug Madory, a researcher for the network management firm Dyn, who said that the site was unfinished but had Facebook-style aspects such as newsfeeds, messaging and personal pages. Once the site was hacked, parody accounts were set up of Kim-Jong Un, all visitors were redirected to a YouTube video and 300 accounts were set up by outsiders, before the site went offline completely. However, Madory said that he did not believe that the website was complete or intended to be available from outside North Korea, and was “sure that no North Koreans ever really used it for a social network website, despite the fact that it was hosted in North Korea”.
