AOL has promoted Stephane Panier to the role of president at social network Bebo, which it acquired last year for $850 million.
Panier, who joined AOL in January after six years at Google, had previously been serving as chief operating officer of Bebo.
Joanna Shields, who was CEO of Bebo when it was acquired, left AOL in May. Before she left, Shields was head of "People Networks," a new AOL division devoted to social networks. Last week, AOL CEO Tim Armstrong announced that People Networks would be nixed in a restructuring.
