Google killing all Meebo products except for the Meebo Bar

When we heard about Google’s interest in acquiring Meebo, we hoped for one thing. And Google is not delivering that. They are not killing the Meebo Bar. In fact, they are killing almost every other service operated by Meebo just not the bar.

The company said that following services would be shut down in the coming weeks:

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.

Users can also pick to delete their Meebo accounts clearly on an immediate basis.

This is good news for imo.im as one of their most popular competitors is disappearing from the market!
