It was announced last week that Google is purchasing Meebo, and the social platform is not wasting any time in announcing which services are going away.

In a blog post from Meebo, the company has announced that a large portion of its products will be shutting down as of July 11.  The Meebo Bar will continue to function for the foreseeable future, but otherwise you need to get cracking if there is anything you want to save from the service.

The closing services include:

  • Meebo Messenger (shutting down July 11th, 2012)

    Downloading chat logs: We have created a page where you can download your chat log history at https://www.meebo.com/chatlog-download. This page will no longer be available after July 11th, 2012.

  • Sharing on Meebo (shutting down July 11th, 2012)

    This is the product currently at meebo.com, designed to connect users to their interests.
    Downloading share history: If you log in to meebo.com you will see a link that will allow you to download your complete share history. This will no longer be available after July 11th, 2012.

  • Meebo Me (shutting down July 11th, 2012)

    All embedded Meebo Me widgets will cease to function. You will still need to remove the Meebo Me embed code from your site.

  • All Meebo Mobile Apps (shutting down July 11th, 2012)

    This includes our iPhone, Android, and Blackberry apps. Chat logs can be downloaded athttps://www.meebo.com/chatlog-download until July 11th.

Kind of makes you wonder what exactly Google will be doing with its latest acquisition.
