Students work on return Hyves




Two students claim to work on the return of Hyves. The two seek funding to introduce a better and more privacy-friendly version of the old Dutch social network. “Hyves has always kept a place in our hearts.”

The students Joas Hoogendijk and Patrick van der Nat say to RTV Utrecht for a year to work on the return of Hyves. According to them, version 2.0 of the old social network should not be commercial, but decentralized, and focused on cooperation and the long term. Just like Hyves, the network must be ‘social, cozy and focused on you and society’, is on the Time for Hyves site .

“It’s time to pick up the social values ​​that Hyves brought with it, to continue and to take it to a higher level”, it says in the words of the two. Problem is that they do not yet have permission from TMG to use the name Hyves. They are also still looking for money to realize their plans. With 70,000 euros in donations, they want to realize the back-end, the digital infrastructure, an office and an Android version.

The original Hyves went offline in 2013 and the name is now connected to a game site .
