"Bebo is coming back in February 2021 as a brand new social network. We are currently in private beta," a statement on the company's website read.
Long before Instagram and Snapchat were about, bebo was where it was all popping off. You could rank your friends, use all the slang words in the world and generally just have the time of your life.
Everyone had a profile, including plenty of future Premier League and international footballers. And to mark this historic news, it's only right we revisit some of those classic pages and embarrass a few players along the way.
After name-dropping some of his achievements in football, he went on to let state, "ive gota gawjuz girl cald sarah shez amazin n i love her been together just over a year n its great."
Carlos Edwards was his favourite Sunderland player, while Cristiano Ronaldo was his overall favourite footballer. What was the 17-year-old scared of? "Nothing" was his swift reply.
With that sort of mentality, it's no wonder he captained his side to a Premier League title.
Sticking in the North-East, a 16-year-old Andy Carroll also conjured up some utter gold. His Newcastle-heavy page is superb, from quoting the jungle book in his favourite films section to his line, "i've got got a big fear for spiders, i absolute hate them, also hate stuff like snakes n that (not my snake tho *wink face*).
Then there's Aaron Ramsey, now at Juventus of course.
Accompanied by a sensational profile picture, his bio reads: "Hi, im Aaron i play football for Wales and cardiff city. Im about 6 foot with brown hair and brown eyes, like to go out with my m8s and familly!
"Films i never used to be a films type of person but i must admit i have bn watchin a few l8ly like die hard 4 n a few others that a cant think of rite naw.
"Sports football Scared Of nuthin im hard as nails. hmm wel sum say i am but i wouldnt like to cum that close to tarantulars if thats how u spell it.
"Happiest When with friends, familly. like it wen we go out n have a gd nite with al my m8s."
"I live in Caerphilly a little town by Cardiff so if ya wanna get 2 know me more add me on msn [email protected]
"Music i like alsorts of music but indie stands out for me and btw i dont like dance.
We finish with Gerard Deulofeu, formerly of Barcelona, Everton and Watford. The Spaniard, with his early Justin Bieber trim, could not resist posting a slew of cringey shirtless pictures.
He will not want to be reminded but sorry Gerard, we had to bring them up again.
