    I only really use facebook and I've never even been on Bebo, once. I believe it's quite popular in Ireland but it really hasn't managed to establish any sort of foothold in the UK from what I can gather. Looks like it's headed the way of MySpace - eating Facebook's dust.

    Bebo is just full of 13yr old chavs, in the same way that Myspace is just full of teenage emo kids.

    I'm surprised Mite hasn't come to the defence of MySpace.

    He liked the customisable element of it over facebook, a point with which I agree.

    I remember making a Bebo account ages ago and just simply hating the whole thing. Facebook is rubbish but its simplicity is a good enough reason to keep coming back.

    yeah Bebo is for kids. i still have mine which i check once every blue moon. Bebo is crap though compared to facebook.

    Anyone remember Hi5? that was huge over here in NZ and Australia about 10yrs ago! then Bebo came along and killed it and now Facebook has eaten Bebo up. Only the strong survive.
