New Hive is new social media consumption network around self-expression.

 

From "About" page:

"An Expression can be anything.
You can customize each page to look however you want by easily dragging and dropping text, images, shapes, music, sketches, video + content from other sites to lay out each expression exactly as you wish.

 

Each Expression can be private or public, each one gets it's own custom URL.
It's easy to share through email, blogs, websites + all of your social media sites.
