DRIVETRIBE, a new social network from the current hosts of Amazon's 'The Grand Tour' and the former hosts of BBC's 'Top Gear,' is a way for car buffs of all stripes to connect with one another. The site creates an online ecosystem for people who like cars, offering content based around various themes.
DRIVETRIBE is structured by 'Tribes.' On the sites, Tribes are simply groups that have a common theme. For instance, each of 'The Grand Tour's' hosts has their own tribe, and there are other tribes devoted to things like beautiful roadways, modified vehicles, or Italian cars, to name a few.
To join DRIVETRIBE, users link their Facebook accounts to the site and then select up to six Tribes. After that, they can comment on posts, repost items, and 'bump' things they find interesting (an action similar to upvoting on Reddit.)
