Google acquiring Meebo

Just saw this, which is pretty cool.

We are happy to announce that Meebo has entered into an agreement to be acquired by Google!

For more than seven years we’ve been helping publishers find deeper relationships with their users and to make their sites more social and engaging. Together with Google, we’re super jazzed to roll up our sleeves and get cracking on even bigger and better ways to help users and website owners alike.

We’ve had a blast building Meebo so far and we’re really excited to start the next leg of our journey.

Thank you all for coming along for the ride!
Meebo Team


Ripped from their blog.

Been using meebo for random chatting between platforms and it's been developed very cleverly from day dot. Good to see the small guys copping some recognition. Seems they fetched around $100 Mil

That's interesting because I tried to use Meebo Messenger from Changi airport recently and noted that they didn't have a Google Talk login option (unless I missed something?)

https://www.meebo.com/messenger

@teq: it's a web-based IM app that allows you to login to multiple IM clients (e.g., Facebook, Windows Live, etc). I've found it incredibly useful while travelling at times.

If platforms = operating systems then IRC ftw.

Seems to be the way to make money now - make a free web app, gain attention from google or fb.. get bought out.

Apparently doesn't even have to be a good or working app, take google docs for instance - what a useless piece of s*** and they bought someone out for that


Also pinky - your link is buggered. www.meebo.com/messenger

Google have just bought out Quickoffice so there may be some upgrades to google docs at some point.
