Rap duo Insane Clown Posse have set up their own version of Facebook.

The rappers, who have an extremely loyal fanbase who are known as 'Juggalos', have set up their own version of the social networking site, which is titled Juggalobook.com.

Fans can sign up to the site and interact with one another, using many of the same features that the hugely successful networking site offers its users.

It was revealed last year that 'Juggalos' have been officially classified as a criminal gang by the FBI.

The FBI 2011's National Gang Threat Assessment Report [NGTAR] has labeled Juggalos as a "concern to law enforcement" after becoming alarmed by their "general destructive and violent nature".

A report published by the NGTAR says: "Most crimes committed by Juggalos are sporadic, disorganised, individualistic and often involve a simple assault, personal drug use and possession, petty theft, and vandalism. However, open source reporting suggests that a small number of Juggalos are forming more organized subsets and engaging in more gang-like criminal activity, such as felony assaults, thefts, robberies, and drug sales."

The fanbase, who often sport the same clown make-up as Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope, host their own festival each year, which is called 'The Gathering of the Juggalos'. The festival will take place this summer in Illinois and will feature live shows, karaoke, wrestling and all manner of other events.

Last year, former White Stripes singer Jack White teamed up with the Insane Clown Posse to produce their single 'Leck Mich Im Arse' and releasing it on his Third Man Records label.
