Motorola could be Google’s largest acquisition, but the company has many more plans and projects. And according to the latest rumors, the Search Giant is currently in the talks for purchasing Meebo.

If you haven’t heard of it, Meebo is a social network / chat client / tool bar service. And sources are indicating that this is not exactly the cheapest company to purchase. It could cost Google $100 million.

But why exactly would Google purchase this company? Google has a social network – Google+. It also has Google Talk. Would Google really purchase a $100 million-dollar company to have a form of tool bar with persistent social networking and chat capabilities?

Maybe it would be a good idea to have a form of unified chatting client for Google Talk. One that you could use wherever you may be browsing through. Or they could somehow integrate Meebo’s social network to Google+? Anything we could mention would be nothing but a wild guess. But it is always good to try to speculate, so what do you think?
