Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

The Beta badge is achieved by "Actively participating in the private beta." Does that mean the private beta for Stack Overflow (which I believe never happened) or just any site on the Stack Exchange network?

There was a private beta for Stack Overflow - it was in July 2008!

The badge is site specific so you get it for a site when you participate in the private beta for that site. It's way too late to get it for Stack Overflow, but if you commit to a site on Area 51 and ask and answer questions in it's private beta you'll the badge for that site.
