Meet New Friends in Meebo Rooms

Meebo was acquired by Google in 2012 and incorporated into Google Plus. Google + has since shut down. This article is presented here for archival purposes.

Keeping up with friends and family is easy on Meebo, but did you know you can also access literally hundreds of public and user-created chat rooms, too? Meebo chat rooms offer users a great opportunity to meet new friends around the world who share similar interests, in addition to sharing music, photos, videos, and other media in real-time inside the virtual rooms community.
