QQ,Webio is not supported any more by Ubuntu.

There is a QQ plugin available for pidgin.

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/lainme/libqq/ubuntu YOUR_UBUNTU_VERSION_HERE main 
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/lainme/libqq/ubuntu YOUR_UBUNTU_VERSION_HERE main 

ppa:lainme/libqq Launchpad logo (Click here for instructions on using PPAs.)

For weibo : http://libpurple-microblog-sina.googlecode.com provides a plugin you can download the source and install it.
