  1. Hmm... good question. I've no idea. Possibly, probably. If not now then there will be soon. Don't get me wrong; I understand the function behind these and I've used both a little bit myself, but they're just nothing special. Certainly they aren't the fantastic services that they're hailed to be. MySpace is fugly beyond belief. BeBo is a go-slow.
