Most of the time, whenever Facebook goes through changes
like shitty updated privacy policies, people respond negatively.
That won't happen this time.
Looks like Facebook and Skype are working on a partnership, which will integrate SMS, voice chat and Facebook Connect.
Here's what sources are saying is Facebook's goal with this integration:
To mesh communications and community more tightly together and add more tools to allow users to do so.
In return for introducing video chatting to the world of Facebook, Skype's 560 million registered users will have even more company with the addition of 500 million Facebook users.
Skype users will be able to SMS, call, and video chat with Facebook friends on version 5.0 of Skype, which will emerge from beta in the next few weeks.
Exciting news! This almost makes us completely forget about Facebook
sort-of founder Mark Zuckerberg's less-than-flattering portrayal in The Social Network.
Are U excited for Skypebook?
