My Eskwela ID

Philippine-made Eskwela.com starts inviting users
Source: Inq7.net

ESKWELA.com, a social networking service designed for Filipino students, has launched a "semi-open" version allowing people to start building their own virtual social cliques.

Semi-open means people should be invited by a registered user to start using the service.

To attract more people to sign up, the creators have launched a "get as many friends and win a T-shirt" competition, a public forum website, and a blog.

INQ7.net was among the first few people invited to evaluate this Philippine-made social networking website.

Inspired by the popular Facebook.com, a social networking website started by a Harvard student Mark Zuckerburg in February 2004, Eskwela.com hopes to "fill in the void" in the local market for social networking that caters to students, according to Eskwela.com co-founder Terence Pua.

A brainchild of LJ Delgado, founding engineer and alumni of the University of the Philippines Diliman, Pua said Eskwela.com is seeing more people signing up to the service but he declined to reveal the current total number of users.
