Lil Mama & Meebo Rooms

Check out the Meebo blog to find out why Lil Mama’s awesome lipgloss is related to meebo’s latest feature.

IM website Meebo launched a partner-friendly version of meebo rooms, allowing rich media to be added to the virtual rooms members create to meet up, chat and view videos with their friends. New features include brand customization and flash skinning, ad tracking and traffic/data reporting. Music sites, labels and artists have been first to jump into the phenomenon; more than 75,000 meebo rooms have been created since the feature initially debuted May 15. – via Cynopsis

I’m sure the kids are loving this feature, but if you take a glance at the blog entry comments you’ll find that some adults aren’t to crazy about this iteration of meebo rooms:

    June 29th, 2007 at 6:16 am While I wouldn’t phrase it the same as Scott McDonald, I have to agree. I don’t care at all about meebo rooms and in fact I am waiting for you guys to add a feature to turn them off!!!

    Is this why you don’t support IRC even though gaim does?! Only thing worse than re-inventing the wheel is re-inventing a wheel no one needs.

If you check out Lil Mama’s MySpace page, you can see her meebo room. For the past few days it has consistently been filled with 80+ users. Pretty cool! Her team also has a whole assortment of additional interactive media and promos since the last time I dropped by, so it looks like I will have to make a Pt 2 to my post on Lil Mama & The Future of Artist Promotion.
