Although I’ve got an account on Bebo, I feel like some kind of nearly extinct species there, since most users seem to be between 10 and 12 years old.
As an MP said today:
“My daughter is 12 and she has been on Bebo for at least 18 months and I think every single one of her friends is and spends hours on it. It is universal, way below 13.”
The odd thing is that Bebo officially requires all users to be at least 14, but as far as I can gauge, 14 is the age when youngsters feel too old for Bebo and move to other social networking sites.
Funnily enough, the kids these days clearly know a lot about the dangers of the Internet, so many of them write they’re married so that they don’t attract sexual predators, but it’s normally clear from their profile photos how old they really are.
