If you haven’t heard the news, it looks likely that bebo will be closing by June. There was a strong and active fannish community over on bebo. Sadly, we don’t really have the time to do a full out preservation effort like we tried to do with Geocities. What we will try to do in the mean time is to create a database of groups on bebo that we can make into individual articles. We will also upload screencaps of random bebo pages that will be uploaded. It isn’t much but it can begin to give people a picture of what happened on bebo. This will be on top of our existing bebo related articles. If you can help us by improving existing articles and creating new ones? That would be massively appreciated. This sort of history is important to remember and document. Time is limited so it has to be done now.
