Considering Meebo was one of the first IM clients to feature a pirate emoticon (type the letter P followed by a right parenthesis “P), it’s only natural that they celebrate International Talk Like a Pirate Day Last year, Meebo enabled Pirate Speak, where if you type “
pirateon” your IMs will be translated into pirate lingo. This year, Meebo has enabled users to select a special pirate buddy icon.
we’ve enabled you to show off your pirate pride by choosing a special pirate buddy icon! We’ve added three new buddy icons that are only available for a few days. If you sign in with a meebo account, you’ll be able to select one of these new pirate faces from the buddy icon chooser on the upper left area of your console.
One thought on “Meebo Celebrates Pirate Day”
I think Flickr did the best job of celebrating Talk Like a Pirate day.. I’m not much of a Meebo user, so I didn’t notice this feature.
