This is a big day for developers. The Bebo platform has just launched for all developers. Get ready for the massive influx of new applications launching on the platform within the first few days. I will most definitely launch my own applications as I’m sure will all other developers that previously had successful applications. This is also a great opportunity for those that didn’t experience the same success that a select few experienced on the Facebook platform.
I have not had the opportunity to test out the Bebo platform yet but I can guarantee that over the next 24 to 48 hours I will be exploring this platform thoroughly. No official announcement has been made by Bebo yet but I’m guessing their decision to launch the platform late at night signals their desire to do some final tests prior to the announcement. I began receiving tips early yesterday afternoon that a Bebo launch was imminent. Looks like my tipsters served me well.
Today is not as big of a day as the Facebook platform launch but it is very close. Bebo is currently one of the most popular social networks and it has just become the second social platform to launch. We will see this same process occur with each of the other social networks over the coming months. Look for developers to flock to each new platform as it opens as they seek new opportunity in untapped markets.
It will be interesting to see how this pans out over the coming days. Will you be developing for the platform?
