Between threats from Anonymous and a new crackdown from Twitter, ISIS is having a tough time reaching out and recruiting new psychopaths online.

To circumvent the censorship, the Islamic militant group has reportedly created its own social network called “Khelafabook.”

The Facebook clone claims it is independent and not actually sponsored by ISIS (even though it has ISIS logos all over its homepage). It says its goal is to show the world that they don’t only “live in caves” and “carry guns,” and they vow to “will rule the world by Allah’s permission.”

Khelafabook was set up by a man in Mosul, Iraq, according to The Independent, and is hosted in Egypt. There’s also an associated Twitter account which is linked to from the site.

The site first popped up last week, but has already been taken offline “to protect the info and details of its members,” according to a message on the page.

After it was taken down, Twitter accounts associated with Anonymous appeared to claim responsibility, as Vocativ points out.

For the the time being they’ll have to look elsewhere to share their terrorist pancake recipes.

It may be the "Year of the Selfie" but a certain Decepticon is having none of it.

In an epic rant with a girl a Universal Studios, Megatron perfectly sums up everything that is wrong with social media and a generation of people addicted to their phones.

"You will not receive a selfie so long as you stand before me with your ridiculous furred hoodie!" he says. "When will you learn that your status updates mean zero-to-nothing to anyone, ever! It doesn't matter which social network you post it on. Worthless! Use your mind. Create new memories. Interact."

Truer words have never been spoken.

Seriously? Again?

In what is becoming a regular thing these days, yet another celebrity in the midst of controversy has reached out to people on Twitter, and yet again it has backfired.

Dr. Mehmet Oz, who has been under fire for promoting suspicious weight loss products on his show, initiated an online Q&A on Tuesday for people to submit their medical questions.

Instead, he was inundated with Tweets basically calling him a snake oil salesman and a quack.

Here's a few notable examples, but you can read them all on the hashtag: #OzsInbox.

People are taking to social media after a fire at the Manchester Dogs' Home in England took the lives of more than 50 dogs.

The campaign started when one person took a selfie with his dog along with his donation to the home and asked people to pass it on. The goodwill of people has been incredible and so far more than £600,000 has been raised – obliterating the original £5,000 target.

Those donating have been posting their #dogselfie to help raise awareness and more money. You can join the cause at the Just Giving page through Facebook.

The song starts a little more than a minute into the video.
BTW, people paid $1,300 to go to this event.

Goodbye cruel social world...
