BBC - Feb 4 - Bebo's co-founder plans to relaunch the social network with a focus on profiles and "real-time" interactions between friends rather than the news feed at the core of Twitter and Facebook. Michael Birch says his aim is to provide a "refreshing break" from the misinformation spread elsewhere. Bebo - an acronym for "blog early, blog often" - was once the most popular network in the UK, as well as being big in Ireland, Australia and New Zealand. At its peak, it had ~40M members. Bebo has been sold for $850M. But Mark Zuckerberg had proposed to sell it to Facebook for stock options.
