How global is the Filipino?

They're everywhere. "How far afield?", you might ask. I guess you'll just need to check out Friendster or Multiply to figure that out.

Now if you're still unsure, perhaps you may want to consider barangay.ph's approach to show how Pinoys/Pinays globally connect to one another. Simply add your Filipino event at their site.

Another Social Network Site? The "About us" tells us the following:

"Jonno Alcaro is the CEO of FilipinoVillage.com. With over 26 years behind him in the financial securities industry, specializing in the marketing of services, he is also former co-owner, Director and EVP of YellowPages.com. Sold to SBC and BellSouth in November 2004, YellowPages.com consistently received over 8 million visitors to its site each month at the time of its sale.

His wife, Nanette de Dios Alcaro, is the President. She has 20 years experience in the deluxe hotel business in Manila and the U.S., having worked with The Peninsula NY, Plaza Athenee NY and Hotel Bel-Air LA as the Director of Sales and Marketing.

They have over 45 combined years of marketing expertise in the U.S., worldwide and online. Together they have created the business and marketing model behind FilipinoVillage.com."

So there, not exactly Friendstery nor Multiplyish, but it could get the job done. So what's happening in your Filipino corner of the world?
