On February 17, 2011, Bebo launched a brand-new design.
In April 2011, Bebo added a new notification system, similar to Facebook's - a feature which had been much-requested in feedback.
On January 30, 2012, access to Bebo became unavailable for 36 hours, resuming normal service during the early hours of February 1, 2012.
The site was purchased by AOL on March 13, 2008 for 0 million, with the Birches' combined 70% stake yielding a profit of 5 million from the deal. This was mainly due to the falling numbers of unique users; Bebo users were moving to rival site Facebook.
Adam Levin, CEO of Bebo and Criterion Capital Partners, stated that they were trying to release some new features which caused the site to crash. The crash triggered a belief that Bebo was gone for good, so that the hashtag #bebomemories trended worldwide on Twitter.Users received a personal profile page where they would post blogs, photographs, music, videos, and questionnaires, which other users may answer.Additionally, users could add others as friends and send them messages, and update their personal profiles to notify friends about themselves.The company announced the launch of their newest app, Blab, in early 2014 which closed in 2016.eventually registering at least 10.7 million unique users.However, Burke Capital Corporation receiver has clarified that Bebo remains "healthy" and "operating," and that the company was using its May 9 Chapter 11 filing in Los Angeles to "restructure some operational inefficiencies and other arrangements that are burdensome." Many analysts have questioned the value proposition that Bebo could offer users and do not fault CCP. Who knows, but it will be fun trying." On August 6, 2013, messages were posted on informing users that the site would be down for maintenance from August 7, 2013.
