NewHive lets you post media including text, audio, and video to a group of followers. But NewHive goes a step further, letting you post all sorts of media at the same time on the same page. An entry on NewHive could include a full-screen animated GIF, a handful of embedded videos, and some accompanying text, and still appear relatively tame compared to some of what’s on the site. The pages often recall the garish profiles of the original MySpace, unapologetic in their use of neon and glitter. At a time when companies from Facebook to Medium make a fetish of clean design, NewHive dares its users to create something ugly.
