Chat with your UG friends using Meebo IM!

Views: 1,657
Comments: 18
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.

PS: Here is the official feedback/reports thread.

PPS: Clear your browser's cache if you don't see the bar on the community pages.

I don't want to use this, is there any way of getting rid of the bar that appears whenever I sign in? Or at least setting it to not sign me in and hide itself automatically?

Very awesome addition. I can see myself using this quite a bit. Thanks UG Team! :cheers:

Good idea and thanks for this new service... Now can you explain me how to talk with hundreds of friends at the same time ? Think I need a new secretary to type for me ...
