September 29, 2009 lovelycdc

Bebo is a social networking site created by Mr. and Mrs. Birch.  It went live in 2005.  After  obtaining over 4o million users, the Birch’s  sold the networking site to AOL for $850 million.  As of 2009 Bebo is being used in the United States, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Poland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, India, and the Netherlands.  It was originally aimed towards people in their 30s.  Just like other social networking sites, Bebo allows you to add photos, blogs, and apps.  Also like other networking sites, Bebo allows you to change skins; however, there are no risks of spyware or viruses since the skins were not made by any third parties.  Also Bebo does not allow you to choose your own usernames, or urls, they are chosen for you, but a good thing is the username is close to your name.  Bebo focuses on community, self-expression, and entertainment.  Bebo was rated third in the top thirteen social networking sites.  Here are it’s ratings…

Overall: 3 1/2

Security: 4

Networking features: 3

Search: 2

Help/ Support: 3

legitimate Friend Focus: 4
