The best way to meet people using the Hi5 interface is by using your direct friends to meet second and third-degree friends. Much like how LinkedIn creates a connected web of associates that can be contacted if found within sufficient degrees of connection with a friend, Hi5 allows users to reach out and connect with the friends of the friends of immediate friends.
Hi5 provides ways for users to share information, upload photos, write journal entries and create scrapbooks, similar to how most social networks operate. Employ the advanced search feature to find people from your school, year of graduation or based upon some other variable. One way to meet friends through your friends on Hi5 is by inviting more of your friends to use the service. When you sign up, you're given the option to send an e-mail to people in your address book to invite them to join you on the service.
In addition to being a tool that helps you make new friends, Hi5 offers a Flirt feature for users to browse and get in touch with potential dating partners. If you see someone you're interested in, send him a flirt request. If he likes your flirt request, Hi5 adds you to his friends list so you can communicate more freely.
