Company Details

Update

Meebo is a consumer internet company that offers an advertising-supported embedded social media platform to develop products for enhancing user engagement across the web. The company’s flagship product, the Meebo Bar, is a solution integrated into websites that provides publishers and advertisers a way to leverage audience by weaving content engagement and brand experiences into the consumer’s web experience.

Using Meebo’s web sharing product, users can share pictures, videos, sites, and articles found on the web. They can share them across social networks such as Twitter and Facebook, and at Meebo they can see how many people have clicked on their shared links.

Meebo is backed by True Ventures, Sequoia Capital, Draper Fisher Jurvetson, Jafco Ventures, and Khosla Ventures.

Meebo was launched as an instant messenger aggregator platform in September 2005 by Sandy Jen, Seth Sternberg, and Elaine Wherry. The company is headquartered in Mountain View, California, and has since expanded to six offices including San Francisco, New York, Chicago, Chicago, Atlanta, and Los Angeles.
