Users share content within groups you can join or create yourself.
After 2 years of development, isoHunt founder Gary Fung has managed to push the boundaries of BitTorrent tracker sites a bit further with the advent of Hexagon.cc, a “social file-sharing site” that allows users to share content within groups you either join or create yourself.
“These groups can be public, based on interests or made by independent bands, film makers, game studios, etc. for promotional purposes,” says Fung. “They can also be made private, so you can very easily and comfortably invite your friends to a private group for sharing your private videos and such. You can do this on Youtube and similar sites, but with BitTorrent, you can share any type of file and not only video, and there’s no restriction on file format or size (as much as you can seed).”
So after registration users can browse through preexisting groups…
Or create their own…
Fung notes that one of the real benefits is quality of content aside from obvious privacy protection concerns. Since Hexagon groups are invite only, spammers can easily be prevented from introducing the usual glut of fake torrents and adware/malware nonsense.
Another cool feature is that you can tag uploaded torrents (think Waffles.fm) so that it’s much easier to browse content unlike the proverbial audio vs video rigidity of most BitTorrent tracker sites.
Hexagon.cc’s currently invite only, but the following link can be used 10 times.
If I get more I’ll add additional invite codes.
There’s also good old-fashioned IRC > irc://irc.p2p-network.net/Hexagon
