Before Twitter and Instagram, there was Bebo and it looks like the OG social media platform is making a comeback very soon.
Over night, social media users noticed that when you head to bebo.com, a message appears on the website which reads: “Bebo is coming back in February 2021 as a brand new social network. We are currently in private beta. If you’ve been invited please enter the password below.”
First founded in 2005, Bebo was one of the earliest social media platforms which allowed friends to connect using their profiles which were made up of information about themselves, photos, posts, comments, and hand-drawn art. The website peaked in 2008, before it filed for bankruptcy in 2013.
Since finding out about news of Bebo’s comeback, many social media users have expressed their excitement for its return, while others are less enthusiastic and wonder where it’ll fit it in the current digital world.
While there’s limited information about Bebo’s return next month, the current message on the website added that new users will not be able to access data from old accounts.
The message reads: “PLEASE NOTE: All old data and photos were lost many years ago and are not recoverable. Sorry.”
Are you here for this comeback?
