Technically speaking, Meetro is radius and proximity based software. Untechnically speaking, it finds like-minded people around you instantly. Wherever you are. So whether you’re in-town or out of town, Meetro gets you on the town with old friends or new acquaintances.
Interesting that this would happen on the heels of a Marketwatch article that spoke to the “stickiness” provided by IM services for others such as Yahoo and AOL, which Google is greatly missing out on. Couple that with the fact that they belive in local and you have some good reasons why they bought them.
The next question is…what is the integration? We haven’t seen anything with Dodgeball yet…so what will we see with this?
