AOL + Bebo


I wish I could say this was important, but it's not. AOL is a company coming apart at the seams. Bebo is a company that long ago stopped itself from realizing it's full potential.

In that sense, it's a match made in heaven. Unfortunately, it's also a perfect example of orthodox strategy - growth/share thinking - at it's worst.
