AOL's Bebo social network to gain lifestreaming features

AOL's Bebo social network will gain lifestreaming capabilities.

AOL's Bebo social-networking site will gain features for lifestreaming, an increasingly popular type of online service that lets people broadcast frequent, brief updates about their lives through photos, videos, blog items, comments and other content.

Lifestreaming posts are often compiled from a variety of other social networks and social media sites and formatted in a chronological, timeline-like interface.

In addition to adding lifestreaming to their Bebo profiles, Bebo members will be able to receive updates in this format from contacts in external sites like Facebook, MySpace, YouTube, Flickr, Twitter and Delicious, according to information provided by AOL to reporters over the weekend.

In addition to Bebo, AOL also plans to provide this Lifestream Platform via other of its online services, including the instant messaging networks AIM and ICQ, via mobile devices and to third-party Web publishers interested in adding this functionality to their sites.

The lifestreaming features in Bebo will also be available to companies, artists and celebrities who want to use lifestreaming to promote themselves or their brands on the site. According to AOL, Bebo has about 22 million monthly unique visitors

AOL also announced on Monday launched a new classifieds site called AOL Classifieds.

The new classifieds site, co-developed with Oodle, lets people search for products through every U.S. zip code and post ads for free, according to AOL.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
