We are happy to announce a test launch of the Meebo Community IM service on Ultimate Guitar. This means that now you can chat with your UG friends and buddies from dozens of various IM platforms straight from your favorite guitar website!
The bar, which you can see at the bottom of the page, is currently available only on the Community pages (user and artist profiles, and groups), but in just few weeks you will be able to use it everywhere on UG.
What is Meebo IM?
It's dead simple: this browser-based chat client allows you to communicate in real-time with your friends on Ultimate Guitar, all you need is just to log-in to the site!
If you also want to talk with friends on any chat network Meebo supports (including AIM, MSN, ICQ, Facebook, Gtalk and much more), then sign up for a free Meebo account here, add the desired networks to your profile and sign-in to Meebo through the bar on UG.
Share the pages
As another bonus addition, Community IM has a cool sharing feature. Click the "Share" button at the bottom left hand corner of the chat bar, and either send a link of the page you are currently viewing to Facebook, Twitter, or Email, or to any of your buddies in the chat list (just click on the username).
In other words - just try it, it's very simple and intuitive.
