Bebo Is Back: Have You Gotten Your Invitation Yet?
 
# 1 : Friday 29-1-2021 @ 18:24
 
 
I remember when Gmail launched as "invitation only".
Have you got any intention to join a Bebo relaunch in February?
Have you already gotten a code?

It was a social network for teenagers, and for arrested-development young adults.
I joined it after 2 years of it running for a work reunion. It did not last 10 years.

It was shite, and aimed at MTV generation teenagers really.

You gals/guys are probably too grumpily aged to have been exposed to it.

Apple is involved in the beta testing of their App.

Dude you may be younger than me in years but compared to me in mentality you are a fossil, like seriously if we are talking "grumpily aged" you are the grumpiest old fart I know. This is you



so pull the reigns in there before you call others "grumpily aged" love since you seem to think that just because you know what it is you were part of the "MTV generation"

Hmmm.
It is clear from what I said that I was not the core target of Bebo.

Just like my parents where not the core target of Facebook when they joined it.

Emulating the grumpiness of my granny and the teenage angst of my niece will not change my statement that it was aimed at the MTV generation.

In actual fact, I was wrong. Funnily. Because it turns out that I technically do qualify to belong to what is called the MTV generation despite never watching it at the time.

I am in fact between generation X and early millennials.

So it was actually aimed at what I perceived as being the MTV audience of that time. Which it turns out is not the MTV generation. Not aimed at me in any case.
I only joined it for a work reunion. Unlike other young adults suffering from arrested development and deluded that they were teenagers at heart.
Hardly a claim of "coolness".
