Bebo Founders Buy Back for $1M


Launched in 2005, Bebo (which stands for ‘Blog Early, Blog Often”) use to be one of the biggest social networks in the UK, rising to 10 million unique users and at its peak Bebo saw over 1 billion page views per week!

In 2008 AOL bought Bebo from the original founders Michael and Xochi Birch for $850 million of which the Birches pocketed $595 million.

Having been eclipsed by Facebook, Twitter and other social networking sites, Bebo filed for Bankruptcy in 2013 at which time the husband and wife team bought back the domain name for $1,000,000 and have relaunched Bebo as a messaging app.
