Google is buying seven-year-old Meebo, the social web toolbar company that began as a chat service. The company announced the deal on its blog, but did not disclose financial terms. Mountain View, Calif.-based Meebo raised upwards of $70 million across four venture rounds from a slew of brand name VCs, including Khosla Ventures, Sequoia Capital, Draper Fisher Jurvetson, Time Warner and JAFCO.
We are happy to announce that Meebo has entered into an agreement to be acquired by Google!
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.
Thank you all for coming along for the ride!
