Is anyone else here part of the bebo phenomenon, i read recently over 500,000 irish people are on it thats must be near a quater of all irish young people. I think its not so big in the USA because of Myspace, but what overall do you think of this outbreak of social networking, is it good or bad, a positive impact on young people or a negative one???
There are only two options regarding commitment. You're either IN or you're OUT. There's no such thing as life in-between.
Bebo is great for keeping in contact with people with almost no effort at all. Its number 3 in my bookmark list, behind DeviantArt and YouTube.
The Word of God - Surprisingly indistinguishable from one's own personal opinion.
I do have bebo, but gone off it a bit recently.. more fun when I was at school.. :grin:
Me and my friend put it as a contradiction to itself. It's a social network yet it takes away your social life. His point of view was it shows how an online society works.

It's just a fond farewell to a friend-"
I don't use bebo, I'm on myspace but I spose it's the same kinda thing.It's pretty good to keep in contact with people you don't see much or haven't seen for years. I've found old mates I haven't seen since primary school! It's great to see what they're up to.The down side is, it's addictive. I used to spend way to much time on it.It is also fairly dangourous with the youngins being on it and stuff. The was some fact like, when they scanned the myspace data base the found X number ( somthing fairly high) or registered sex offenders. I get alot of random guys messaging me on it wanting to hook up or meet for a date or somthing but I'm way way to carful for that kinda crap but I know there's alot of girls who wouldn't thinj of it that way....Oh well, I can deal. I like it.
