Hyves.net throws party for 30,000 people

Sure, discussions about the Web 2.0 bubble are here to stay. Sometimes however, a social network proves the critics wrong. For example, the Dutch equivalent of Facebook, Hyves.net, is welcoming its fifth million user today. Four million users are Dutch (well, not me – where did they get that?), which is huge considering that the Netherlands has a population of 16 million. That’s absolutely true.

To celebrate the occasion, Hyves is throwing a party in Amsterdam. The location has space for 800 ‘Hyvers’ to party with the crew.

And this is the amazing part: more than 30,000 members asked to be on the guest list! What an active network! If so many members want to party with each other in real life, Hyves must have some value.
