Skype Makes Facebook Integration A Reality
Following the talks between Skype and Facebook to integrate their service together, things are finally set into motion. The new Skype 5.0 for Windows was just released with many improvements and features; the most notable being the inclusion of a Facebook tab.
The Facebook tab on the new Skype 5.0 application allows users to call their Facebook friends via Skype, as well as to send SMS and chat with them.
If you are used to the news feed on Facebook, you will now get similar view on your Skype. The difference being, under every status update that your friends make there will be two Skype buttons that you can press; the call and SMS button. The buttons will only appear if your friends on Facebook have included their phone number in their profile. You can also go to your Facebook contact list on Skype 5.0 to directly reach specific friends.
