"Some company and school firewalls prevent employees and students from using meebo."
do we have a citation or link to verify this, other from your own personal experiences?--18.104.22.168 04:06, 15 May 2006 (UTC)
- Most filters block all chat sites regardless. 22.214.171.124 23:49, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
You can check it out in urlblocklist.com ,they banned meebo and their IP
Can we get some info on what kind of Business Model they're planning for Meebo? I know all three of them basically quit their jobs and work on Meebo fulltime. What's the plan? -Mazin07
"the goal of the project is to combine the features of Trillian with the availability of AIM Express"
Is this a stated goal? (reference?)Meebo uses the gaim libraries, so I would suggest that it's goal is to combine the functionality of Gaim with the avalability of AIM Express. bjmurph talk‽ 09:42, 13 March 2006 (UTC)
I've just gone ahead and added a section for this. As always, remove it if you feel it's unneeded but I think it's a needed topic. Shamess 20:36, 16 September 2006 (UTC)
Just pointing out for the person who changed this section: the bugs are still there, at least on my server anyway. (Server 2.)Shamess 17:42, 17 September 2006 (UTC)
I read on the forums that meebo bascially uses a jabber backend with transports to the other networks. Does anyone know if this is correct? The bellman 04:26, 16 October 2006 (UTC)
Not correct at all. Everything is over gaim. --126.96.36.199
Meebo's support confirmed that Jabber uses libpurple as their backend, so they would be using libpurple's XMPP libs:
Your request update
Thank you for the email. Yes, we still use libpurple. There has been no changes with this that I am aware of. Are you having a problem connecting?

Series A & B
I'm a bit confused as to what's being said when stuff is being refered to as "Series A" and "Series B", is it just an expression I've not heard before? Could someone clairify? Shamess 09:41, 23 January 2007 (UTC)
- A term you've just not heard before. It's an expression that people involved with a Startup Company or Venture_capital_financing would be familiar with. I've added appropriate linkage for those terms in the article to Venture_round#Round_names. Good suggestion! 188.8.131.52 (talk) 20:46, 21 January 2008 (UTC)
Perhaps mention of Meebo's use of libgaim?
- It's libpurple now. - ElbridgeGerry t c block 18:57, 13 May 2007 (UTC)
- Well, shouldn't it be mentioned? --184.108.40.206 11:20, 14 August 2007 (UTC)

Is plugoo actually a competitor? I'd say it's more like a compliment as it's primary function appears to be to allow visitors to your web site to IM you rather than to be a web IM client. In fact don't you need an IM client to receive the IM chat from your web site? DeadKenny 16:43, 18 September 2007 (UTC)
- The plugoo blurb reads like a blatant attempt at advertising. It certainly doesn't warrant two whole paragraphs. 220.127.116.11 14:36, 23 September 2007 (UTC)
- Wikipedia's engine requires that the first character be capitalized. If the company name really is supposed to be all lowercase, then there is a tag that can be added to the top of the article page that will correct the display of the name. See the Ibook page for example. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 20:46, 21 January 2008 (UTC)
Difficulty between messengers?
I was just talking on this, and tried to start a camera chat with someone using the full yahoo messenger, but they said they couldn't get it. Is this an issue with it? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 05:25, 18 June 2008 (UTC)
Opera 9.5 Issues
About as serious as the issues I brought up over on the eBuddy article:
Opera 9.5, with Meebo
Meebo user names that have special characters (IE: Quotes, or [ or ]) may have their username blank in the buddy list. The typing notication seems to be broken. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 21:29, 25 June 2008 (UTC)
you can see the ip address of a buddy when you chat with them using meebo, right? i can view ips when i log in to my yahoo account using meebo, but when i use YM itself i cannot. Why the difference? anyone? 188.8.131.52 (talk) 15:37, 28 December 2008 (UTC)
Regarding the following edit. The following text was unreferenced/unverified and I could not find any reference to it online so I removed it from the main page.
On August 27, 2007, Meebo has been found to cause problems with users computers. Problems include loss of data and computer failers due to exposure through the internet.
As of this writing Meebo (whether it is the library or the code, I don't know) does not support the GPU acceleration built into IE9. You can test and fix this issue by disabling this capability with the Internet Options, first item, that is GPU acceleration. Both Microsoft and Meebo have been alerted of this incompatibility. Meebo does not advertise support for IE9. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 16:17, 17 May 2011 (UTC)Kim Parker
Meebo is Spam
Shouldn't there be a section about where Meebo fits in on the Internet?
The only thing 99% of the world knows about Meebo is that it is the annoying thing at the bottom of a lot of websites. That deserves at least a mention, no?
I don't know how to edit or I would do it myself. This whole article seems like it was written by the meebo PR department.
Here is just one of hundreds of articles talking about how much the meebo thing on the bottom of websites is terrible. The only positive hits about meebo come from the meebo website.
