Hyves - The Netherlands


Hyves is a social networking website that was created and gained enormous popularity in The Netherlands. It's a typical online community with free registration focusing on keeping in touch with existing friends and making new ones. Features include among others personalized pages with user-generated content, such as photos, videos, flash and custom layouts. The website achieved so much popularity that it's not uncommon to find Dutch politicians becoming members and singers promoting themselves through personal pages. As of August 2009, Hyves claimed to have over 9 million users, among them more than one-third of the entire population of The Netherlands.
