I know if I had some spare change I would be buying Bebo.
Apparently it has gone relatively unnoticed in Silicon Valley, at least according to this report.
But over here I have never heard or seen anything like it. Anecdotally, just walking around UCC in the past week I overheard at least a dozen conversations that mentioned Bebo, where students never normally seem to talk about any other social networking site (besides MySpace), or indeed any other thing to do with the Internet. And that includes blogging.
So what is it about Bebo? I have no idea. But it sounds like everyone from 16 up is using it, and the recently added every school and university in Ireland.
Expect a buy-out from a bigger player soon.
