Where is Meebo chat on GAG?

I must admit I'm slightly relieved its gone... Like other people I got a lot of pervy messages. I usually had to get on GAG, then log out of meebo straight away to appear offline, otherwise within about a minute I'd have people talking to me who often ended up asking me to Skype them, or asking me personal questions.
I do miss it for chatting with my actual friends though- It was useful and I'm sure a lot of people found it one of them best ways to get advice or help and stuff :o6
We are fcked. I asked the same thing earlier today. I mostly login to GAG just to chat with people this sucks bad :'(5
I'm actually glad it's gone. I am busy and can't be "on demand" when 5 other people are talking to me at once, and I'm browsing this site, and I have 26 messages in my inbox lol.3
No I honestly didn't know it excisted,but from all of this I'm seeing thank goodness it gone! Shucks I don't wanna be molested "via Internet "4
I was wondering the same thing. On MeetMe.com they use Meebo. Well, they did when they were MyYearbook.com but I don't know if they still do. I don't see how Google could stop it though.0

Google is shutting down the Meebo bar completely on June 6, but they've notified current partners of this and recommended that they remove the Meebo code from their websites. GAG has obviously done that already.
For those of you who aren't aware, Google has been working on a new, UNIFIED messaging app, code-named Babel, to replace all of their other messaging apps (Google Talk, Google+ Messaging, Google+ Hangouts, Google Voice texting, Meebo, etc.). We have yet to see what the end result of that is going to be, but it's definitely coming, and it's possible that there will be some kind of Meebo replacement at some point after that rollout.1
I truly feel that GirlAskGuys.com will have a chat function available on it again, powered by a non-Meebo source.
Trust me, the administrators of this site know how important the chat is, in regards to the "staying power" of this site's members.
For now, I suggest that people start private messaging each other to exchange either:
1) their IM information for AIM, Yahoo, MSN, Google Talk, or Skype
2) their number for their texting app (such as TextFree) for their mobile phone
3) their actual phone number (if they feel comfortable taking that "risk")
4) ask for their username on social media sites and add them
I have done, and do, all four of the above, and have had no "problems" whatsoever in terms of keeping contact with my favorite users. You know who you y'all are. 8-)
Now the part that DOES suck, is for those current users who have recently signed up, and won't get the full experience of GirlsAskGuys.com that us more seasoned users had, which will be bad for:
1) keeping those users' profiles active on the site (for statistical reasons for advertising and such)
2) keeping these new users on the site WITH high levels of activity
i will miss that chat function -- really enjoyed talking to some people I had met on here.1
