If Only eBay Could Auction Boyfriends...

Forget match.com or myspace, eBay is starting their own "social" network. I suppose people who want good deals want to meet others with similar interests... Sigh, I remember the first time I bought something from eBay... it was a Game Boy game. True story, I saved $10 and never looked back.

Hoping to woo shoppers who say eBay Inc. has lost its folksy appeal, the world's largest online auction plans to launch its own version of a social networking service Wednesday and is promising other customer-friendly features by year's end. The "Neighborhoods" feature encourages users to post photos, product reviews, tips and responses — creating a far more visual and interactive experience than eBay's text-based discussion forums.
