AOL broke the news to its employees on Tuesday through an internal memo that spoke about AOL’s plans of saying goodbye to social networking site Bebo. The memo stated: “Bebo, unfortunately, is a business that has been declining and, as a result, would require significant investment in order to compete in the competitive social networking space. AOL is not in a position at this time to further fund and support Bebo in pursuing a turnaround in social networking.”

The pending decision regarding Bebo will be made by AOL sometime next month.
