Hornet is free by default, meaning you can make full use of the service’s core features without spending any money. There’s a lot you can do with just a free account, and this article runs down the features in the next sections. Most important, though, you can communicate freely with other users even without a paid account. For this aspect alone, Hornet already makes a strong case for a top spot in our rankings, since many of its competitors tend to charge just for a truly usable profile.

That said, Hornet also offers paid subscriptions that give you access to additional features. Mostly these involve additional controls over the visibility of your profile or how many photos you can view or upload.

Here’s a look at the available subscription terms:

  • 1 Week: $4.99
  • 1 Month: $7.99
  • 3 Months: $21.99
  • 12 Months: $59.99
