Google isn't making much headlines today, presumably because Apple is clouding all over it. But in some G news, Google recently purchased social media site Meebo and has announced a shutdown of most of its products. The first banners on their site states: "Google has recently acquired Meebo!" The second: "Meebo.com will be shutting down July 11, 2012."
Created in 2005 as an instant messenger platform that could connect one to other IM platforms from AIM to Yahoo to Live Messenger, it expanded into the Meebo bar which allows users ot chat on various websites that didn't offer a chat service.
Google purchased Meebo as part of its Google+ initiative and is now shutting down the Meebo Messenger, Meebo Me, all Meebo Mobile Apps and Meebo Sharing.
