Skype eBayIt’s official now, Skype is own by eBay. eBay pay a total of about $2.6 billion in cash and eBay stock for this VOIP messenger.

One of the fastest growing companies on the Internet, Skype already has 54 million members in 225 countries and territories. Skype is currently adding approximately 150,000 users a day and has created a thriving ecosystem of products, services, developers, and affiliates. Skype is considered the market leader in virtually all countries in which it does business. In North America alone, Skype has more users and serves more voice minutes than any other Internet voice communications provider.

I bet the reason eBay bought Skype was to keep up with Google, Yahoo, and Microsoft, who all have some kind of VOIP in play or will be. Now eBay can use Skype for the click to call ads, the popular new advertising program.
