What is eBay going to do with it, it's hard to say; it's not exactly the most logical acquisition ever, but when a site has over 2 million registered users, you can surely use it for something.
Interestingly enough, on the same day Google updated its toolbar to include a new button (with an image of two dice), which does basically the same thing as StumbleUpon: sends you to a random site based on your previous browsing preferences and search queries.
Well, that’s no replacement for my stumble bar. I use StumbleUpon as a way to easily send sites to my fellow stumblers – sure it’s fun to randomly find pages, but it’s more important that I don’t have to write up an email everytime I find a page a friend might like.
Anyway, I’m going to keep an eye on this new deal – I hope that I don’t see any negative changes – I’d hate to have to stop stumbling!!
