Facebook Twitter Bebo was founded in 2005 by husband and wife - Michael & Xochi Birch. It grew into the 3rd largest social network in the world and indeed - fun times were had. They sold the company in 2008 to AOL for $850M and celebrated with a victory pint. Over the years, the website faded away, until last year the original founders decided to buy Bebo back for $1 million, and began brainstorming ways to re-invent it into something fresh. In 2014, we will be launching 3 apps, each has its own name, style, and purpose - but all are made by Bebo. The first app, Blab - video walkie talkie - is available in the app store for iPhone!
