Meebo has finally confirmed that they are being acquired by Google.
The company said in a message on their website:
For more than seven years we’ve been helping publishers find deeper relationships with their users and to make their sites more social and engaging. Together with Google, we’re super jazzed to roll up our sleeves and get cracking on even bigger and better ways to help users and website owners alike. We’ve had a blast building Meebo so far and we’re really excited to start the next leg of our journey.
Remains to be seen what Google would be using their technologies for. Meebo provides an online instant messenger along with social tools through their platform.
