  • It may seem like everyone uses Facebook, but they don’t. Some people, in fact, use social networking sites that aren’t Facebook. Shocking, I know. Here’s a good one, though: it’s called Hyves.net, and it’s very popular in the Netherlands, with over 8.5 million users (that’s over half the population!).

    And how great is their office? SO great. The ridiculously bright colors make it look like something out of a storybook or an acid trip, but there’s just enough of the neutral colors so that it doesn’t make me feel uncomfortable. They have pretty views of central Amsterdam from their many windows, and look, even their doors are interesting. The many murals do a great job of giving each room its own distinct personality. All in all, a superb office. Well done, Hyves.net.
