Previously available to only large content sites and social networks, the Meebo Bar helps sites drive more user engagement and user growth, while livening up their sites with professional social tools.

Since launching in 2008, the Meebo Bar has helped over 120 major content sites and social networks to double the number of links shared and posted by their users, boosting website traffic. Current features include personalized buttons and widgets, drag-and-drop sharing of content, on-demand analytics, and on-site instant messaging across IM networks.

"Meebo is excited to offer the Meebo Bar to sites of all sizes, and to let site owners with little to no programming knowledge reap the benefits that Meebo has given to large-scale publishers over the last year," said Seth Sternberg, founder and CEO, Meebo. "Users can now begin to expect a cutting-edge product experience on large sites they visit, as well as niche sites, smaller communities, and their own blogs."

Site owners can now integrate elements like menus, buttons, and widgets to enhance and customize the end-user experience on the Meebo Bar. Meebo offers several pre-made buttons to hook the Meebo Bar and site visitors into Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, StumbleUpon, Digg, RSS, and other services directly from the site. Any hosted site as well as sites built on any of the major blogging platforms, including Blogger, MovableType, TypePad, hosted WordPress, and many others, can build a custom Meebo Bar in a matter of minutes.

Sharing is a key component of the Meebo Bar. Meebo's elegant drag-and-drop sharing can be enabled on pages to allow visitors to easily share links to blog entries, images, and other content with their Facebook friends, Twitter followers, and email or instant messaging contacts, driving traffic back to the site.

After adding the Meebo Bar, site owners and bloggers will gain access to analytics and advanced customization options on the Meebo Dashboard. Already deployed for Meebo's corporate partners, the web-based dashboard provides real-time tracking of sharing, site visitors, and programmable button activity. FAQs and documentation are also available for those seeking to optimize the Meebo Bar experience on their sites.

The continued growth of Meebo's existing partners and the addition of new partners has fueled a nearly 2x increase in reach in the last five months alone.
