The AOL owned social networking site Bebo, has launched a "Social Inbox" that allows users to aggregate all of their social media into their profiles.

The Social Inbox aggregates feeds and updates from Twitter, Flickr, Delicious, YouTube, and AIM. Users will also be able to access Gmail, Yahoo Mail, and AOL Mail in one-click. The new mail feature allows users to see previews of new email messages.

Users of AOL and AIM will now be able to log directly into Bebo using their existing screen names.

"People want the ability to stay in-touch with their contacts in real-time wherever their friends may be across the Web. The current fragmented social networking environment makes keeping up-to-date with others increasingly difficult. Bebo’s new Social Inbox is our first step in solving this problem," said Joanna Shields, President, AOL People Networks. "

"By opening up our network to the most popular sites and allowing our users to pull in the best of the Internet, we are creating an environment where everyone can easily and effectively manage their online lives, no matter where the individual pieces reside."

The Social Inbox feature is the first major update for Bebo since AOL acquired it earlier this year for $850 million. AOL is hoping the Social Inbox will help Bebo to attract more users while keeping its existing users engaged.

Bebo says the Social Inbox is the first in a series of scheduled releases for early 2009.
