meebo released the meebo rooms API and meebo Network, as well as five launch partners for the new programs â€“ Piczo, Revision3, RockYou, Social Project, and Tagged. The meebo rooms API enable large-scale implementations of meebo rooms for bigger community sites. The API is geared towards social networks, as well as large media and entertainment sites to enable live community on their sites in an automated fashion. To monetize these new partnerships, as well as dozens of existing relationships, meebo announced the formation of the meebo Network, a network of premium community, media and entertainment partners with whom meebo will be sharing 50% of the ad revenue derived from meebo rooms. For partners in the meebo Network that prefer an ad-free integration of meebo rooms, a yearly licensing fee option is also available.
