Difference Between Facebook and hi5

hi5Facebook vs hi5

The Internet has indeed come a long way from being just a place where people from all over the world are able to get up-to-date information right when they need it the most. Today, millions of people from all over the world go online, over the Internet, not to really research for information, but to catch up on the latest with their friends and loved ones. The ability of the Internet to cross international barriers has made it a haven for different social networks to spring up and allow friends and families to remain connected in ways that they have not been able to in the previous years. These social networks have also helped people find long lost friends, and make new ones.

Facebook and hi5 are two of the most popular social networks on the Internet today. These two social networks have so many things in common. Both provide their users with the ability to connect to friends and families, make new friends and play online games through the website, while still being able to connect with other people. However, these two sites have a lot of differences as well.

One of the main differences between these two social networks, is the ability of users to personalize their profile pages. With Facebook, users have pretty much the same look for their profile pages. Apart from uploading pictures, videos and other applications, Facebook clients are not able to change the overall look of their profile pages. In the case of hi5, users have the ability to change the overall look of their profile pages, allowing them to make it more personal. hi5 users have the option to choose from the ready-made profile page skins that are available on the site. They could also embed the CSS code of a layout which they found from other websites on the Internet. Some computer programmers can also have the option to create their very own profile skin, by adding the CSS code to their profile settings page.

Another difference is security. In this aspect, Facebook has the upper hand. Visitors to hi5 can easily view the profiles of the different people using the online social network. In the case of Facebook, users have the option to choose from different settings that would permit other people, who they are not connected with, to view their profile. This gives them a sense of privacy in the social network. On top of that, Facebook users can also select which particular activity or updates can be viewed by certain people. This way, they are able to limit the amount of information that they share online.


1. Facebook and hi5 are popular online social networks, which are used by people to keep in touch with family and friends, find long-lost friends, and provide an avenue to make new ones.

2. Facebook provides its users with a standardized profile page. hi5 users have the ability to personalize their profile page, by choosing from available profile page skins, or by creating their own.

3. Between the two, Facebook users are provided with more security settings, that limits the amount of information shared with people who they are connected with, as opposed to hi5 users.
