Social networking site Bebo has beaten rivals Facebook and MySpace in an independent analysis by Computing Which?.
In a test of ten popular sites, Bebo and Facebook got the top scores – 79% and 74% respectively. They were rated easier to use than MySpace, and were best for socialising.
The photo-sharing site Flickr proved to be the best site in the special interest category, with top scores for both performance and ease of use.
Abigail Waraker, Editor of Computing Which?, said:’Social networking sites are growing in popularity and, as the success of Bebo in our test shows, sites like MySpace and Facebook can’t rest on their laurels if they want to stay in the game.
‘It’s also encouraging to see that no matter what age you are or what interests you have, there is a social networking site out there for you.’
