Bebo Puts SocialThing to Work. Is It Too Late?

Yes, Bebo has joined the ranks of the larger social networks out to take your soul. Yesterday’s announcement from Bebo revealed its new Social Inbox, which not only lets you log in using their AOL and AIM credentials, but will aggregate social feeds, mail and media recommendations from a host of services including witter, Flickr, Delicious, YouTube, Gmail, Yahoo, and AOL (of course).

Having been acquired by AOL earlier this year, Bebo has been somewhat slow to make any major moves towards revolutionary feature upgrades. But seeing the open standards emerging at a quickening pace from Google, Facebook and MySpace, Bebo is sure to get in on the game, putting its own acquisition of SocialThing to work.
