Eskwela – a Philippine Facebook?

I took the opportunity to test out the alpha version of Eskwela.com.

At first I wondered why it was hosted in Godaddy, despite its tag line that it is 100% Pinoy. One commenter responded that “we don’t have much choice when Pinoy web services cater only to big businesses and not to the masses. even in IT pa sosyalan tayo.” Nonetheless, a couple of commenters did provide more interesting taglines: “Proud to be Pinoy” was one of them.

All in all, it does have promise, though it is still a little rough around the edges.

    This is a very serious issue, esp since the developers of Eskwela were the once the developers of Pusit.com that was acquired by Friendster.

    Check out my analysis on this issue including my thoughts on how Eskwela might succeed where Friendster didn’t at:

  • i think the tagline 100% pinoy is referring to the MAJORITY of users they are trying to acomodate..

    although there is a subliminal message underlying on this matter.. whatever that is, i hope its doing its purpose.. very clever..

  • I represent futurepowerengineer.com. I would like to advertise on eskwela.com. Can anyone please help me to get in touch with their advertising department? We offer online training to bright young Filipinos with a good understanding of math and science. The outcome is a favourable upgrade in the immigration que to Canada and a six figure job in the Alberta energy sector where there is a huge shortage of power engineers.
