About

Bebo was an early social network, first launched in 2005 and sold to AOL in 2008, where it didn't fare well!

Prior to its sale it was the largest social network in the UK, Ireland and New Zealand, and briefly the largest site overall in each of these countries.

Bebo was eventually bought back by the original founders, Michael and Xochi Birch. It relaunced as a brand new social network in February 2021.

Since it's first inception the social landscaping network has changed significantly. The opportunity to re-think a social network from the ground up was too much to resist. We hope you enjoy this new version. It's very much a work in progress which we're having fun with, we hope you enjoy it too.
