Not a Bebo Member? Be Glad!

"Bebo's HUGE error! (UPDATED)"
Jake's Blog (May 21, 2008)

"We all seem to trust that the information we provide to social networking sites such as Bebo and Facebook is safe and secure, and that our account really is our account that nobody else can access or view certain parts of. However an incident such as the one that has occured tonight makes you think differently about your privacy and security in online communities.

Looks like Bebo has been randomly connecting members with other members' accounts when they log on.

Not good public relations.
