eBay Live! 2006 — Skype buttons in eBay "About Me" pages and listings
Meg Whitman announced Skype buttons in select eBay categories in her Tuesday’s keynote. Some people walked by the next days to ask more. Here’s where we stand with the buttons.
You can already put a [Skype button](http://www.skype.com/go/skypebuttons) on your “About Me” page. And there will be an [eBay Announcement Board post](http://www2.ebay.com/aw/marketing.shtml) early next week (June 19th onwards), clarifying the details about Skype buttons in listings in the initial trial categories and the mechanics about this works. We hear there will be a simple wizard available so that you won’t actually have to do any HTML code to put the button in your listings.
Here you see Bill Cobb, president of eBay North America, who was kind enough to take his time to drop by the Skype booth to say hi and see what we had. He is here standing in awe over the Skype buttons and other things we showed.
