You might not think BitTorrent was a good candidate for social features – people using the service for illegal downloads are surely unlikely to want to link their real identity to their activity via Facebook, for example. However, social is a big part of BitTorrent’s new beta Project Chrysalis client, although we sense rightsholders will not be cheering. One new feature is private sharing, where users can upload files and then share it with friends on email, Twitter and Facebook. The new client also includes features that could be beneficial to the creative industries though, such as content channels for users to subscribe to podcasts and episodic content. Chrysalis will sit alongside the existing BitTorrent application rather than replace it. Source: GigaOM
