It looks like Meebo Messenger is shutting down. Very sad for me to face. I've had an account with them since 2006. I used Meebo quite often during 2009 and 2010. Those were the years it hit the droid and I used the app to abusive extents.. LolMeebo Messenger will be shutting down on July 11, 2012. Click here for more information about discontinued products. If you have a Meebo Messenger account, we have set up a page where you can download your chat logs.
This means users will no longer be able to access Meebo and Meebo's products such as AIM, MSN, Yahoo!, etc. This is hard for me to see. Meebo was a great product. What a shame.
The cause of it's death? Google's acquisition. Shortly after the acquisition was finalized, Google posted https://www.meebo.com/support/article/175/ and it is breaking the hearts of many.
Some alternatives to Meebo: AIM Express, eBuddy, Digsby, imo.im, Trillian (source: http://www.ghacks.net/2012/06/10/wit...-alternatives/). Or you could just download the program itself, but some people do not prefer it
What's everyone's opinion on this? What does everything think? Personally, July 11th will be a very sad day in internet history for me.
Addition: Meebo Bar will still be visible and accessible to webmasters, but I'm afraid to say that's the start of a slow death. I haven't really seen any webmasters use meebo bars in frequency where they will stay alive - unless I'm on a Webs RPG - but Webs and Meebo have had an age old agreement already...
