Bringing Social Discovery to hi5

Tagged made our biggest acquisition to-date in late 2011 by purchasing hi5, and today we’re excited to share some planned updates for the site.

With a history in social networking and game play, hi5 will transition in the coming months to have a deeper focus on meeting new people. Tagged made a similar shift in 2007 after seeing that our members were using Tagged to meet new friends and expand their social graph. This was different than other social networks, which were primarily designed for keeping in touch with existing friends.

Now we’ve entered our fifth year of working toward our mission to enable anyone to meet and socialize with new people. Updating hi5 will take us one step closer to our social discovery mission by expanding our reach to a significantly broader group of users (more than tripling our entire user base to 330 million).
