Questions

If you have a question that isn’t answered here ask to talk to us at Sohi Team or email us at team@sohiworld.com and we’d be happy to help.

Who is Sohi for?

People who are 16 years old or over.

What is Sohi for?

Sohi is a website that helps you find people and ask to talk to them. You can use Sohi for many purposes: to find business leads, to talk about a hobby, to learn from an expert, for advice about schools, and more.

Can my company register a profile on Sohi?

Yes. Top tips:

  1. Remove the ‘age, gender, etc…’ fields from your buzzwords as these will not be relevant for you.
  2. People like to talk to people, so make sure you put a face to the company in your video.

Can I have two profiles?

Yes. But you need to create them from unique email addresses. Some of our users will be happy to share lots of different things they wish to talk about in one video and with one set of buzzwords, but others might find it useful to have two separate profiles.

I’ve asked to talk to someone and they haven’t replied. What should I do?

Some of our Sohi users get a lot of requests. If you don’t get a reply then they might be busy, or they might not be able to talk with you and it’s important that you respect that. You can try asking someone else.

Make sure you write a clear explanation of what you want to talk about, and tell them which of their buzzwords interests you.

How do I make my video?

You can:

  • Record your video on www.sohiworld.com by using our built-in filming technology (video tips here )
  • Upload your own video that you’ve already made (video tips here )
  • Come to a Sohi event/ host a Sohi event and record your video there. Click here to find out more.
  • Get your video professionally made. We’d be happy to put you in touch with Sohi film makers who can come to you to make your Sohi video. Click here to find out more.

How can I filter my search?

Search by multiple buzzwords to filter your search. For advanced searches you can include: country, language, gender, age bracket (16-2​5​, 2​6-35, 3​6-45, 46-55, 56-65, 66-75, 76-85…).

What if I get too many requests?

Let us know at team@sohiworld.com, we can help with our Sohi managed service offering.

Are there ‘code buzzwords’ on Sohi.

Yes, we’ve got trending buzzwords on Sohi…

  • employme. If you’d specifically like to find employment through sohi.
  • mentor. If you’d be happy to mentor someone who is interested in your field/ profession.
  • language. If you’d like to help people with their language learning, whether professionally or just for conversation practice.
  • dating. Sohi isn’t designed as a romance/ dating site, but we aren’t against romance/ dating. If you would like to receive dating requests please add the buzzword ‘dating’. If someone doesn’t have that buzzword, please respect that the user isn’t using Sohi for dating. We will monitor the site to spot users who are not respectful of this.
