Hi5 Review

Average: • 1 / 5 (by 1 Users) for Hi5   View Add

Hi5.com began in 2003 as a social networking site and quickly became one of the most popular social networking sites on the internet. In 2009 it refocused on becoming a social gaming platform. Similar to many other social networks, such as Facebook or Friendster, Hi5 has friend networks, groups, status updates and photo sharing. While it was started in the United States and is used all over the world, the site is especially popular in Latin America. The Hi5 site says that there are players from more than 200 countries and is localized in over 50 languages. With more than 40 million monthly visitors, the popularity of this site means that you’re likely to meet great singles!

A “social network game” is simply a game that is played on a social network. So, instead of playing a video or other type of game alone, a person can play it online with other players. You may already know some of the players through your friend network, or you can meet new people. Some examples of social network games include MafiaWars and Farmville. This gaming aspect provides a fun and unique twist to online dating:you can potentially meet other singles based on common interests in games and social networking. There are more than 130 games on the site, providing you many options to find something that piques your interest.

Hi5.com is unique because in addition to offering advanced social networking and social gaming features, it also has a variety of ways to meet other singles. There’s a dedicated section called “Flirt,” where you can search for other members who are interested in meeting singles. With the ability to post photos, join groups based on your hobbies and interests, create status updates and search other interesting people, there’s no doubt you can find singles to connect with. The site is incredibly easy to use and navigate—so finding interesting singles, messaging them or adding them to your friends network is a simple process.

It’s free, it’s social and it’s fun – give Hi5.com a try today!
