Hot Tip: Bebo Set to Announce Developer Platform Too

We’ve heard from a couple of reliable sources that social network Bebo is about to announce a developer platform very soon. Apparently it will be a “platform API”. The source of these rumors is a Bebo investor, so we think it’s on the mark. Bebo is one of the largest social networks in the world and is above MySpace and Facebook in some parts of the world (e.g. it is number 1 in the UK).

Earlier this week we heard that MySpace will launch its 3rd party developer platform in just a few weeks. And of course the instigator of large scale social networking platforms, Facebook, announced their “open platform” in May 2007. Although it turned out to be not quite so open, the Facebook platform has been probably the year’s biggest Web success story to date.

So the social network ‘platform wars’ will be well and truly on, once MySpace and now Bebo launch their developer platforms! Watch this space for more on the Bebo news…
