MySpace in talks to team up with eBay

Although MySpace and eBay have not made any public announcements, Wall Street Journal is reporting that for several months, News Corp.'s Web network MySpace has been in talks with online auction company eBay Inc. about a partnership. According to people familiar with the matter, the proposed idea would allow MySpace users to buy and sell items using eBay's online-commerce technology and its PayPal payment system. The integration would allow updateable entries of items up for auctioning to be posted on a MySpace profile. This is the type of deal that, if it goes through, needs to be implemented correctly or else it could be disastrous for both companies.

E Bay = Auction Site
Myspace = Social Networking site

Hmmmmmmm Why not keep them seperate. Like someone said "if it goes through, needs to be implemented correctly or else it could be disastrous for both companies." Why can I see an influx of Nigerians making myspace profiles lol.

I fail to see what either service really gains from this partnership. Their services are like apple and oranges.

Oh wow, the two worst implemented web sites of their time. Are you ready for more scams, more fraud, and more BS?
