The service has free and premium strands. It includes a feature where there is a direct contact link to a local scholar to whom a privately asked question can be delivered. Local prayer times and charity links are incorporated, as a 'one-stop shop' which might work for mosques seeking an online presence. My students have been researching this issue recently. It will be interesting to see what the take-up is of this product. I plan to take a closer look at it in due course.
Also see MuslimVibe article, CollabDeen: How this platform is using technology to redefine communities for Muslims. I talk about apps and products in 'Hashtag Islam'. I haven't seen it in action yet (and this is not an endorsement). I'm sure other similar products will emerge.
