I'm staying. Although recently I got really busy and decided to turn off my Meebo (since chatting would take a lot of my time and I didn't want to end such interesting convos!Haha :)) ). But I hope they'd get another chat bar in the future :)
I rarely used Meebo to begin with. No big deal to me.
To be honest, I'm actually happy it's gone. I know people really like it. But I was never a fan.
I'm a pretty busy person, I like to come on here during my relax time. I would rather get a PM than have someone come onto Meebo and demand answers to their questions or bug me about stuff. Because with a PM I can reply when I feel like it and not feel pressured or forced to reply right away because they keep buzzing me.
I got sick of being harassed by people as well asking for pictures or video chats. I always signed out of it too.
Sorry if that sounds mean, but I just never had a good experience with the Meebo chat. It's been a source of irritation from the get go for me :P
I know people love it. But I'm not big on chatting with random people over IM's. I'd rather just have a PM.
Plus I mainly like just answering questions on here.
I'm not going to leave, but I hope they get a replacement. I like the informal, casual aspect of chatting with people, especially if they just added you and want to say hi. It's more appealing to me than messaging a person, which isn't instant.
It actually surprises me how much everyone cares about meebo. I'm probably one of the few who is overjoyed that its gone. It's become a nuisance for me as of late. I prefer getting private messages from people than meebo chats. I'll probably use GaG even more now that its gone.
I wonder what will happen this time, the last time this happened (a year or 2 ago) the meebo bar disappeared and it was supposed to be because google bought it and was getting rid of it or something but it was back in like a week, hopefully that happens again, because without the chat function this website gets boring really fast these days
