 Free Web 2.0 Peer-to-Peer File Sharing Community

January 5, 2009, Las Vegas, Nevada – GigaTribe www.gigatribe.com, the company revolutionizing file-sharing, today announced a public beta of GigaTribe Version 3 of its free, community-based file-sharing software.  GigaTribe will preview Version 3 next week at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Las Vegas, at Booth #IP228 (Sands).  Available now in public beta, with the final version available in the first Quarter 2009, GigaTribe Version 3 lets users easily share unlimited amounts of photos, videos, music, and other files with their “tribe” of friends, family, and coworkers, quickly and securely in a private, fully-encrypted peer-to-peer environment.

Community File Sharing Software
GigaTribe lets users set up communities of friends, family and coworkers.  When a GigaTribe user invites a friend to their community, the friend can access all of the user’s shared files: photos, videos, music, personal documents and more.  Community members can invite others, and communities grow as each new user offers their own files for sharing.  There are no files to upload, no size limitations, and all transfers are encrypted, so file sharing is fully secure.  Users can share individual files or entire folders, and file transfers can be resumed if a user goes off-line.

New in GigaTribe Version 3
New features in GigaTribe Version 3 include an easier interface for a quick and simple user-friendly experience and more web community features, such as personal file sharing, where users can comment or rate the files they share with friends; and a Personal Blog, with content only available when you are connected for added privacy (unlike the Public Blog).  In addition, newly added content is more obvious to see -- recently added files are highlighted with a different color than older files.  

Easy to Use – 1 Million Users strong
Using GigaTribe Version 3 is so simple, there are only three steps required:

  1. Download the software and set up a free user account.

  2. Invite friends and family to join the community.

  3. Share folders and start downloading.

GigaTribe’s over 1 million members know that GigaTribe is the best solution for sharing files with friends and family.  Unlike other photo and video sharing sites, files shared through GigaTribe remain in their original size -- resolution is never lowered for posting, as required by most photo and video sharing sites, such as Flickr and YouTube.  In addition, with GigaTribe’s instant messaging feature, users can chat with friends to tell them about new updates or other projects.
