Talks of Google purchasing Meebo have been circulating the internet for almost a month. We found ourselves very confused about what the outcome could be, but it seems some major changes are taking place – Still leaving us confused. Meebo just announced most of its services will be discontinued come July 11th.
- Meebo Messenger (shutting down July 11th, 2012)
Downloading chat logs: We have created a page where you can download your chat log history at https://www.meebo.com/chatlog-download. This page will no longer be available after July 11th, 2012.
- Sharing on Meebo (shutting down July 11th, 2012)
This is the product currently at meebo.com, designed to connect users to their interests.
Downloading share history: If you log in to meebo.com you will see a link that will allow you to download your complete share history. This will no longer be available after July 11th, 2012.
- Meebo Me (shutting down July 11th, 2012)
All embedded Meebo Me widgets will cease to function. You will still need to remove the Meebo Me embed code from your site.
- All Meebo Mobile Apps (shutting down July 11th, 2012)
This includes our iPhone, Android, and Blackberry apps. Chat logs can be downloaded at https://www.meebo.com/chatlog-download until July 11th.
Meebo Support does mention that the Meebo toolbar will continue to be available and supported for site publishers for the weeks and months ahead. But what plans may be set for the future is still unknown to us. For now, you can go ahead and download your chat logs and share history. And if you would rather get out of this mess before the waiting is over, you can also delete your account.
