Bebo–Still Big in the U.K.!–Redesigns
Tonight the Criterion Capital Partners-owned site is launching a redesign, with massive innovations like “Emotion Markers to mark a feed item as Cool, Funny, Sorry, or OMG; replacing those boring and vague ‘likes’ you might be used to on other services,” as well as overlay boxes that replace additional page views when navigating the site, and improved feeds and notifications.
What’s different about Bebo? Primarily, its customizable skins and designs, and its restricted default privacy settings, both catering to its younger user demographic. It also has a deal in the U.K. to offset mobile data charges, which as you can imagine is quite endearing.
