A statement on the company website, says: “Old Bebo was great fun, but ultimately time passed it by and people moved onto other (blue-er) social networks.
“Last year, we (the original founders) bought Bebo back for $1M to re-invent it as something new.
“We loved the old skins, customisation, creativity, and fun of the old Bebo, but wanted to bring that back in a new way. Everybody else is trying to be very “serious” about social networking, which feels a bit strange to us. The new Bebo is for people who don’t take life too seriously.
“As for your old photos, we know how important they are to you. We have good (and not so good) photo memories on the old Bebo, and they will be available starting January 31st 2015.”
Remember Bebo? Well all your photos will be back online in 2015
