I can say that Facebook, while a social network itself, is the "social network killer." The dominant MySpace is now just a shadow of its former self. But I'm seeing a promising rise to prominence by a not yet so known social network. It's called hi5.
What is the hi5 social network I'm talking about? I've known about its existence for a few months now, but personally I don't know much about it. That is to say, I don't know much about social networks either. Aside from that Facebook fan page widget you see there on the right, I have don't have any social network account at all. I'm planning to, but I just don't want to yet.
Anyway, hi5 identifies itself as "social entertainment." But what's different about it?
- More You
Express yourself with custom profiles, avatars, music, and more
- More Fun
Play games, flirt, give gifts, or just hang out
From that, I can say that it's a combination of MySpace and Facebook, throw in all the social networks that have come and gone too, and voila, hi5. I think I might create my first social network account on this one.
But being realistic, I doubt that this hi5 David is going to be a match for the Facebook Goliath. Anyhow, who knows, right? Try it if you want.
'Till my next installment.
