What is Hi5?

Hi5 is a social networking website targeted at a general audience. It became one of the most popular social networks through a huge growth spurt during 2007 with much of that popularity coming from Central America. While it is often found in the top 10 most visited websites in the world, it often fails to make the top 50 in the U.S.

The site gets its name because members can choose to give their friends a high-five. Fives are a way to describe your relationship with your friend. You can give out warrior fives, crush fives, teammate fives, swank fives, and many more.

Why Should I Use Hi5?

Hi5 is a great social network for those in Central America or who have friends or family in Central America. Because it is not as popular in the United States, others might not find as many friends on the network. But, if you know people on Hi5, it is a fine social network to join.
