The search giant is considering paying $100 million (£62m) for the company, sources told All Things D.
Meebo was founded in 2005 as a web-based instant message client and has since launched various social products.
The Meebo Bar allows publishers to add a constant social sharing and advertising overlay on their sites, while the firm's homepage is promoting its tool for users to "create an interest profile to get new and timely information about the things that matter to you".
A Google spokeswoman said of the alleged talks: "We can't comment on rumour or speculation."
Meebo CEO Seth Sternberg, who created the company with Sandy Jen (CTO) and Elaine Wherry (now an advisor) after meeting them at Stanford, declined to comment.
Meebo has raised over $60 million (£37m) in funding since 2005, from investors including Khosla Ventures, Sequoia Capital and Draper Fisher Jurvetson.
