June 27, 2003
Hi5 is an international social network with a local flavor. It enables members to stay connected, share their lives, and learn what’s happening around them. The company was founded in 2003 by Ramu Yalamanchi. In Hi5, you create an online profile in order to show information such as your interests, age and hometown and upload your pictures where friends can post comments. Hi5 also allows you to create personal photo albums and set up a music player in your profile. You can also send friend requests via e-mail to other users. Hi5 allows you to design your profile page with the background and colors you want using either CSS or the editor provided for you by them. Organize your friends with circles and organize your photos with the photo album.
- Comment box on profile page that allows you to post messages for your family and friends to see.
- Photos Album feature where you can upload photos. A photo helps tell the world who you are. Add photos, and make them good.
- Status which allows you to inform your friends of your whereabouts and actions.
- News Feed which appears on your Hi5 homepage and shows information including profile changes, upcoming events, and birthdays of friends.
- Availability of Journal which is Hi5 version of a blog.
- Groups which give you an option to either create or join an existing interest group on the Hi5 network.
- Hi5 Mobile which can be accessed by any mobile phone users on any network by pointing a web browser at m.hi5.com
- Hi5 Gifts which allows you to send virtual gifts to your family and friends that appear on their profile. Hi5 Gifts are not free and requires that you have Hi5 coins which can be purchased using a credit card or Paypal account.
- Hi5 Games which allows you to challenge others in a virtual interactive playground.
One of my all time favourite social networking destination, I really like it.
