Google is finally pulling the plug on the Meebo Bar, a tool for web publishers that allowed website visitors to interact with the site and share content, on June 6 …


Google quickly closed down most of Meebo’s other services soon after acquiring the company for $100m last June, with Meebo Bar the last surviving service.

While Google has shut down a number of products, stating that it wanted to focus on what it saw as its most popular and relevant ones,┬áthis move is all part of Google’s push to make Google+ as popular as Facebook and Twitter when it comes to sharing website content. Google is hoping that websites will switch to its own Google+ Sign-In service to replace the lost functionality.
