Is Meebo gone for good this time or being worked on again?

They keep taking Meebo off. what's the deal? Anyone know why?

Updates:
I didn't get this featured. I think admin did it because of all the other questions about it.

  • You are correct, the Meebo feature has been removed. We are addressing the logistics, as well as a few issues we were having. As many of you know, Google has acquired Meebo, and is discontinuing many of Meebo's products. We are still unsure of our future with Meebo, and we were experiencing many glitches as well. We will keep you updated as we make changes and improvements!

    Sorry for any inconvenience it causes! Thanks. :)

    • not sure why this got so many down votes... It's pretty funny

    • Too many haters in the world. Thanks fer sayin! ; - )

  • Google bought Meebo for some 1,000,000 but they didn't buy it for the chat interface (they already have one, of course)

    They wanted the brains after meebo and got them working on Google projects, ths they closed meebo. link and link

    • Oops, error: deal rumored at about $100 million.

    • Looks like a talent acquisition. Smells like a talent acquisition.

      Meebo, the chat and publishers tools company that Google acquired for roughly $100 million, is going to see most of its products shut down next month. That includes Meebo Messenger, the sharing widgets and mobile apps.

  • When I was a kid, we only had real friends, and the only way we could talk to em was by knocking on their doors, or calling them on the phone and planning where we would meet. It's really not a bad way to do things.

  • Google bought Meebo out and are shutting down most of it's services:

    link

    Apparently the chat bar is the one thing they may keep in operation. I've been on other sites, like Slate.com, that still have a meebo chat bar but now it says "powered by google" on it. So maybe that will happen here too and they're just working out the bugs. I honestly don't know though.

    • It was like this yesterday when I was on... now it's gone. I'm assuming they're just working on it. They're weren't planning on taking it down last I heard...

  • Solutions? I'm on msn: it can be used full screen, way easier than that damned stamp sized Meebo screen.

    Those who want to ask me something can do so by PM (eventually mail or MSN)

  • you gotta feature a question like this to get it noticed? hehehehe

    You must really miss chatting lol. There are other chat applications that you can use, MSN chat, yahoo chat, Skype or maybe even ICQ.

    • I posted a very similar question last night. I would imagine a lot of people are asking the same question so they featured this one so everyone would see it and stop asking.

    • yeah, I just noticed that when the asker updated their question. wow I have gotten dislikes because I mentioned ICQ , didn't know it had become a taboo word. :P

  • I heard from someone in advertising that google bought meebo for their advert algorithm. And the chat bar would be going. Sounds stupid to me.

  • Meebo has said the chat bar functionality will not be affected so that sites can still use it.

    However, GAG does like to tinker with things.

    • Thats what I said by meebo leaves, the only thing staying is the meebo bar.

    • Found this:

      link

      'Meebo is known for the Meebo messenger and the Meebo bar. The company considers the latter its flagship product, saying that it “provides publishers and advertisers a surprisingly simple way to leverage this massive audience by organically weaving content engagement and brand experiences into the consumer’s web experience.”'

  • MEEBOO IS GONE! HE'S DEAD NOW!

  • Like the anonymous user said, Google bought Meebo.

    What do you do?

    Well, you can still message them or get their phone numbers and text...it's not the end of the world that the chat is gone.

    • It was 'killed' by Google because they were interested in the brains behind Meebo, not in the messenger. Thus Google put them at work on their own projects and closed Meebo.

    • Well when it signs me in, I sign right back out.

  • you couldve googled that, what a waste of a featured question
