Meebo Finishes Series D at $27.5M

The content-sharing platform Meebo has completed its latest round of funding, the one we broke the news on last month. As reported previously, Khosla Ventures led the round, but now the total has been raised to $27.5 million from $25 million. Existing investors Sequoia Capital, Draper Fisher Jurvetson, Time Warner and Jafco also participated.

Mountain View, Calif.-based Meebo, which says it reaches a third of U.S. Internet users through its publishers, is preparing for a large-scale launch of its Web check-in feature next year to promote discovery of Web sites and reward loyalty to them.
