eBay recently purchased Stumbleupon.com. The purchase price is reportedly $75 million. Adding StumbleUpon to other Ebay offerings like PayPal and Skype could greatly impact how surfers use these platforms. From 2006 to 2007, StumbleUpon showed 150% Year over Year growth. The platform engages users by allowing them to recommend online content. The more recommendations, the higher a website's content will rank in the listings. Users can also rank ads on the websites, giving advertisers an idea of how their ads appeal to the masses. The site boasts nearly 2.3 million users and 5 million daily recommendations.
