Maktoob is an Arabic social network and web 2.0 group.

Maktoob was founded in the year 2000 as the world's first free Arabic/English Web-based Email service, offering users a platform to send and receive E-mails in either language, regardless of their operating system. In the few years since, Maktoob has strategically grown to become an integrated group of companies and websites.

The network of sites includes Maktoob.com, the world's leading Arab portal with a market share of around 13 million unique users, as well as a range of companies and sites specialized in business and ecommerce in the MENA region.

Although the initial focus was on Arabic/English Web-based email services, Maktoob.com quickly evolved to attract users toward a host of additional services. Maktoob.com's community services consist of email, discussion forums, news, blogs, chat , matrimonial services, games, mobile services, women content, sports content and a variety of other community and web 2.0 services.
