Talking tech since 2003

A few months back, I partnered with Meebo to implement the Meebo Bar on BestTechie which allowed users to login to their IM accounts directly from BestTechie. It also allowed users to quickly share content on the site itself via social networks and other services such as Facebook, Twitter, Email, IM, and Yahoo Updates.  I received a lot of questions about the Meebo Bar from users who typically wanted to know where to get it or how I implemented something like that on my site.  Unfortunately, the only answer I could provide at the time was that it was done through a partnership with Meebo and that it was not available to the public.

However, as of today, that has changed.  Meebo is opening up their Meebo Bar to the public.  The public version of the Meebo Bar includes all of the same features as the one provided to Meebo Partners.  It even includes in-depth analytics so you can track shares and other data.  It is extremely easy to setup the Meebo Bar too.  If you are unfamiliar with the technology, it’s just a JavaScript plug-in, which means essentially all you have to do is copy and paste a snippet of code into your site and you’re off.

Additionally, Meebo Bar users can easily customize and add buttons to their bar from the online control panel on the Meebo website. I would highly recommend any blog or content-driven site jump on this opportunity. The Meebo Bar is an extremely great tool (that’s so easy to use) for quickly sharing content to some of the web’s most popular services.

Have you tried the Meebo Bar?  What do you think?  Leave a comment!  I should also note that I encourage you to share content on BestTechie via the Meebo Bar, don’t be afraid to use it!
