HiHo is a place where you can meet people who share your interests and have great video conversations.
Is HiHo like Facetime or Zoom?
No, HiHo is 100% asynchronous, which is just a fancy way of saying that replies are sent back and forth with recorded videos at different times. This means that people in the same conversation don’t have to be in the app simultaneously or schedule their discussions in advance.
What kind of conversations can I have on HiHo?
Conversations on HiHo run the spectrum of human interests. You may find entrepreneurs offering business tips, matchmakers offering relationship advice, chefs sharing cooking ideas, toy collectors showing off their treasures, and everything in between.
How do I use HiHo?
There are a few ways to engage in conversations on HiHo. You can start a new conversation on your profile or in a channel, reply in an existing conversation, or use the AMA button on anyone’s profile to ask them a question.
Is HiHo private?
No. All the conversations happening on HiHo are public.
How do you keep conversations safe on HiHo?
We have found that people tend to be a lot nicer to each other when they are talking face to face as opposed to exchanging 280 characters. That said, safety and civility are core values at HiHo and there are a number of ways we support them. First, we require real identity to participate. Second, we give users control over who can respond to their conversations. Third, we have very clear content guidelines backed by a strict “one strike you’re out” enforcement policy.
Why did you name the company “HiHo”?
We named the company “HiHo” because it is fast, fun, short, simple to spell, easy to remember, and inviting. It literally starts with a universally known greeting!
Why did you build HiHo?
The incentive structure that powers large social networks today often rewards people for posting content that creates strong reactions, which tends to be divisive and hostile. Trending hashtags and algorithms designed to maximize ad dollars have triggered a race to the bottom of who we are and what we can be. At HiHo, our mission is to bring people together through great conversations. We believe that hearing from real people and looking into their eyes as they tell their stories has the potential to promote empathy, understanding, and true human connection. We could all use a little more of that!

Ratings and Reviews
This app is the future of social media
Picture this: you wake up, you open a social media app to see what’s happening, and you find an inbox with not a single negative, threatening, or offensive comment. There are no “likes” to needlessly compare with your friends. There are just personal videos for you, featuring people who genuinely want to interact with you. It’s fun every time you check it and there is never a rush to respond to anyone, because all messages take thoughtfulness to create, so nobody replies before they actually want to. This is HiHo. It’s personal; it’s fresh; it’s addictive; it’s nice. It’s a nice place with nice people having nice conversations, making connections they never knew they wanted to have, and hear perspectives that will enrich their lives. This app is the future of social media.
HiHo is a genuinely great app
I love HiHo because you can’t fake anything. No filters, no trolling, no surface level interactions. You see everyone’s responses so everything is public and people will see your face. It’s great because you can have these meaningful interactions with people from all over the world via video format and it’s amazing the type of cool, deep connections you can make with people on here. Try it out and see if you like it!
Video Reddit is a cool idea
Downloaded this after listening to Charlie and Ben’s podcast. Thought it was a cool idea how you can add visuals for issues you may be having. Definitely makes it more dynamic.
Personally prefer reading info over watching videos because it’s faster, but maybe it’s just taste. Makes me think a transcription of these videos would be nice, but i understand it’d be a huge task to transcribe a boatload of videos like that
Also don’t know what I really want out of the app. Aside from Tim Ferriss, I was hoping for some kind of community where I can find people of my own interests like Reddit. Perhaps it’s just too new
