i don’t use bebo much, even though i have an account there..
i noticed however they’re running adsense now on certain pages.. rather surprising i thought.. it means bebo can’t control the ads placed on the site, and thus the quality of links can be spammy or poor which will anger users. Have a look at the ads here (refresh the page if you get banner ads, i’m talking about the text ads.)
I came across credit card ads and pre-fab buildings for sale… yes, i’m sure the average teenager is interested in that sort of stuff 🙄 Seems as though somebody is getting a bit greedy if you ask me 😉
The running expenses and wages have to be paid somehow of course, but i don’t think adsense is a good solution for a site the size of bebo, who’s userbase has no cash in general. They should be leading the way in video ads imo..
