Detailed Description

Update

Launched in July 2005, Bebo has steadily risen to become one of the world's most popular social networking sites. Users can create profiles on the site for free, stay connected with friends, watch videos, and listen to music. In early 2008 Bebo had over 34 million registered users and 7 billion monthly page views. Bebo's founders have extensive experience in online social networking, having been involved in the founding and building of such companies as Birthday Alarm, Ringo, and Friendster.

Bebo is officially the largest social networking site in the UK, Ireland, and New Zealand, and is the third largest social networking site in the US behind only MySpace and Facebook.

In 2006, Bebo received the Webby Award People's Vote for the best social networking site on the web.

Bebo was acquired by AOL on March 13, 2008. It was then re-sold to Criterion for less than $10M, with some sources indicating the deal was around $2.5M.
