Gratuitous Bebo mention in teen suicide story

A teenage girl commits suicide for no apparent reason. The Daily Mail reports:

Chelsea, a keen dancer, had her own page on the social networking website Bebo.

Her death comes in the wake of a series of 14 recent suicides involving young people in Bridgend, South Wales, and fears that they may have been linked by websites such as Bebo and Facebook.

However, there is no suggestion that Chelsea’s death has any connection to these.

So why mention it?
