Google Meebo Bar will be Discontinued on June 6

The Meebo Bar service is being discontinued starting from June 6, 2013. Google is doing this to focus more on Google+ Plug-ins and G+ Sign-In. As for the Meebo Dashboard, it will be available till June 30th. Google has done some last-minute cleaning up and its Meebo Bar will be done away with.

June 6th is the date set by Google for some serious spring cleaning. One of the first things to go out the window is the Meebo Bar. A publishing device that had languished for far too long, its time was up. The discarding of this service will be compensated by other plans such as Google+ Sign-In as well as plug-ins. In the capacity of a JavaScript feature, Meebo had just been sitting idle at the bottom of various web pages. But now that is going to become a part of history.

The function of Meebo was to allow social activities to take place on the Net. It also let people collectively explore features. The team of experts at Google deliberated on it and finally came to the conclusion that this was the best decision to make in order to benefit the mobile and desktop publishers. These were the very people who were bound to be progressive. Google has advised its users to discontinue using the inactivated Meebo code and the deadline has been given. The waving goodbye to Meebo belies the fact that it was bought a year ago by Google for $100 million. But this buying and selling is standard procedure for top cats like Google, Microsoft and Yahoo.

After the purchase of Meebo, Google began reverse engineering it in order to incorporate many of its features in its own online software and apps. Today, it is defunct along with several other accessories such as Google Cloud Connect, Voice App (Blackberry) and the cherished Google Reader. As this Internet Giant sloughs its skin, it will be renewed by the fresh arrivals which include products and services having a large number of users. The old must give way to the new. This is the way of the world and Google is a very worldly search engine.
