Micropersuasion has uncovered evidence that eBay is about to launch blogs, wikis, and search tags for its users:

Auction giant eBay is preparing to integrate blog and wiki publishing tools into its selling platform, according to a report on Auctionbytes. eBay Blogs will enable sellers to more efficiently market their products. eBay Wikis meanwhile collect fact-based articles written and maintained by eBay Community members. Both tools will be launched at the eBay Live conference in Las Vegas June 13 - 15.

Working off the Auctionbytes story, I dug a little deeper and found more details including a tag/search platform. The eBay Blog help pages here and the wiki information pages here. In addition, as you can see from the screenshot below and the links on the help pages, Skype integration is coming soon too.
