Well that’s stupid.  Why Bebo? has been rising in popularity, already integrates with iTunes via a built in Sidebar written in Flash that syncs iTunes data with an online profile and offers free MP3 downloads of songs from and offers links to related music taking you directly to the iTunes Store.

They have also added 5 Million new members since launching an Application for Facebook and they had to double their servers several times now just to handle the traffic.

So why Bebo?
