Facebook vs. Bebo… fight!
Yup, it’s true. I’ve joined the masses and signed up for some social networking goodness. Not content with just one network, I’ve joined two (coz my mates are on both), hence this post from a newbie taking a quick look at Facebook and Bebo.
The contenders spout off
Facebook – “Facebook is a social utility that connects people with friends and others who work, study and live around them. People use Facebook to keep up with friends, upload an unlimited number of photos, share links and videos, and learn more about the people they meet.”
Bebo – “Bebo is the next generation social networking site where members can stay in touch with their College friends, connect with friends, share photos, discover new interests and just hang out.”
Bebo go on to say “Bebo (www.bebo.com) is the largest social networking site in the UK, Ireland, and New Zealand, and the third largest behind MySpace and Facebook in the United States.” which I found interesting since I have no idea how big these sites are. Facebook doesn’t make any similar claims, but the New Zealand Facebook Network pushed over 40,000 members just today.
