Bebo say no to 550m takeover

$550m for Bebo? Try at least doubling that figure and you’ll see what Bebo are after having declined a potential $550m takeover from BT, according to TechCrunch this morning.

Bebo has quickly become a serious challenger to MySpace’s social networking domination in the US and is certainly one of the most popular sites in Ireland.

What the hell would you be doing spending a billion dollars on it? Justify that to your accountant!

    If I could spare a billion, I’d be all over Bebo. It’s by far better than MySpace, and thank you for pointing it out.

    No worries Pavlos. Yeah, a spare billion bucks would buy a nice chunk of bebo. Great the way its just not overrun with eye-burning backgrounds and silly templates. Interesting to see how the bebo bands thing takes off!
