Nasza-klasa.pl, now NK.pl (nasza klasa - pl. our class), is a large Polish social networking service that brings together students and alumni.[2]

Launched in November 2006, the service has 13.5 million registered users.[3] It is owned by Forticom (70%) and Polish Nasza-Klasa Sp.z.o.o. (30%), the founding company of Nasza-Klasa.[4] Nasza-klasa.pl ranks among top five Polish social community networking portals. It is not far behind Google.pl, Onet.pl and Wirtualna Polska (.pl), and is followed by Allegro.pl - the biggest Polish Internet auction service.[5]

Nasza-klasa is a website similar in concept to the American Classmates, which allows its users to register from particular schools and graduation years. The users are able to keep and maintain a personal page containing information such as their name, age, photos, interests, and the history of schools and classes attended. Nasza-klasa does not require an invitation to join; however, registration is necessary to browse the service. The leader of the project is Maciej Popowicz from Wrocław. Nasza-klasa is one of the most popular Polish websites, attracting more than 50% of Polish Internet users. Moreover, 10% of the portal traffic (approximately 1 million users) originates from abroad.[5]

Nasza Klasa is compared to services such as Facebook or MyYearbook.
