Meebo is a consumer internet company focused on driving user engagement across the web, reaching approximately half of the U.S. internet population. Our flagship product, the Meebo Bar, provides publishers and advertisers a surprisingly simple way to leverage this massive audience by organically weaving content engagement and brand experiences into the consumer’s web experience. The Meebo Bar is currently integrated into hundreds of premium websites and hosts rich, engaging advertising from many of the top Fortune 500 brands.

Meebo also helps users build their own web experiences around the things that interest them the most. Using Meebo’s web sharing product, users can share interesting stuff they find around the web like cool pictures, videos, sites, and articles. In one single click, they can share across their preferred social networks like Twitter and Facebook, and back at Meebo they can see how many people have clicked on their shared links to watch their influence grow, and easily find information topics of interest.

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