This headline certainly grabbed my attention – “Nimble -v- Bebo” – i first discovered it in an irish forum.
Now i was expecting some sort of space age design with killer features and professionalism throughout. You can imagine what i was thinking when i first opened up the nimble.ie homepage 😆
Ok, so it’s unique and it has a decently designed logo…. eh.. yeah, that’s about it! I was STUNNED to see it has almost 25,000 members as it’s not even 2 months old. Obviously they have an army of friends to spread the word virally.
Nimble is not a bebo killer. It never will be. They need to clean up the appearance, give it a more user friendly interface, and give it curves, gloss, gradients, style… something members can be proud to promote.
Put it this way, unless i made the site for non-commercial purposes, i’d be ashamed to promote the site in it’s current state. No x factor whatsoever and to claim it can even come close to Bebo is an insult to Bebo imo.
