17 Times You Overshared On Bebo

17 Times You Overshared On Bebo

What age was I when I first met someone?

These were the significant things we revealed about ourselves on the digital holy grail, aka Bebo.

The social media confessional for teenagers back in the day may have disbanded but the cringey memories still live on to make us die another day. Say what you like about the flashbox era, no one could accuse us of holding back when it came to revealing personal information.

No suree, when we bared our skin coloured souls, no stone was left unturned.

1. Your selection of top 16 was a carefully orchestrated process that ranked your pecking order of pals. It needed to be reexamined on a daily basis and if you disappeared from a friend's top 16.. well there was trouble.

4. The way you wrote clearly reflected the standard of books your were reading in 'skul.' It read sUmTn LyKe DiS, xx (",).

Seamus Heaney would be quaking in his boots if he was still alive.

13. If you were brave, you posted a 'Who's the hottest poll?.' Pretending you didn't care, you secretly waited with bated breath to see where you ranked among your mates.

15. Choosing the perfect flash-box could make or break your cool status. Would it be a rap song? A ballad? A funny video? The pressure was on.

 

16. Quotes were an important form of self-expression and could be posted in your bio and/or your Bebo skin. A good quote spoke volumes.
