I believe it depends on the context...
e.g.
I, too, want to go to Disneyland(tm).
or
He asked the kids if they wanted any ice cream.
Kids answered yes but one of them answered "Me too!".

does this help?

Certainly depends on the context. "I" is used as a direct object, the one performing the action. "Me" is a subject, the one to whom the action is being done.

I, too, want some ice cream.

The ice cream will be given to my friends and to me too.

You might want to re-think that, Socks.

Oops. Said it backward.

"I" is a subject, the one performing the action. "Me" is a direct object, the one to whom the action is being done.

Thanks.

I think technically "I, too" is correct most of the time, but generally people just say "me too" because they're lazy! (I include myself in that group.)

I think the me, too is the correct one,..but actually its also depends upon the construction of the sentence..

This rule sounds correct.
