No more perusing Facebook in your underwear.
The site will be launching Skype video chat later this week. Calling the launch "something awesome," CEO Mark Zuckerberg hinted that this new integration would be added to Facebook chat.
There will now be an in-browser video chat that is actually powered by Skype, but it's not clear whether or not you will need to download the Skype program itself.
This announcement comes just two months after Microsoft announced they were buying Skype for $8.5 million. And with Facebook and Microsoft being friendly partners, this could be a lucrative business deal for both companies.
We're excited for the new video chat. What do U think of the new service?
