Company: Univillage Limited

Location: UK

Launch Date: August 16th, 2006

In the company’s own words, what is it?

Univillage connects students at universities across the UK. You can find people on campus, contact anyone through the message system and even send digital photos to your friends’ phones, as well as a wealth of other features and ideas.

Outside quote about company:

Quoted by Pete Cashmore of Mashable.com: “I took it for a spin last week, and it’s an impressive platform. There are profile pages, university-based networks, the ability to add friends, groups, forums, blogging, events, photo uploading and integration with Yahoo Messenger. You can also customize your profile by editing the color scheme and fonts or grabbing a ready-made skin from the gallery (unlike with MySpace layouts, there’s no ability to add custom css). A calendar and address book are also included.”
