Bebo Resurrects Itself With A Snapchat Clone

Bebo, a social network that rose to mild popularity in the mid-2000s before changing hands multiple times and ultimately failing, is attempting a revival. Last year, founder Michael Birch bought back his company for just $1 million, and is finally starting to outline his plans for a revival.

On Monday, the company announced Blab, an ephemeral video messaging application with features similar to Snapchat. Unlike other messaging apps, Blab will only let you send messages to one other person at this time. According to The Next Web, Blab isn’t yet available for download, but will be the first in a suite of three apps Bebo intends to release this year.
