THE INDEPENDENT - Mar 12 - Bebo appears to be getting closer to launching its comeback. The site is an entirely new project and that - beyond the name and web address - the old information has been lost. The site is intended to recreate some of the design of the original Bebo, and the profile-focused design that was present not just in the first version of the site but in others like Bebo. It aims to join that with the newer design of feeds that is present in everything from Instagram to Twitter, it notes. It is currently in a closed beta, and people can only actually see the site if they are invited by somebody who is already using it. But before it goes properly live, Bebo is giving people the option to reserve their username to make sure it is claimed when they get there.
