|Facebook and Skype|
Facebook and Skype are working on a deal that would integrate Facebook Connect with Skype accounts, AllThingsD has learned, citing sources familiar with the situation.
The deal will consist of the next edition of Skype (5.0, appearing in a few weeks) including a Facebook tab. Once Skype users click to agree a Facebook Connect link to their Facebook account, they’ll automatically see and be able to call any of their Facebook contacts who use Skype. It means that your Skype contacts would come to include all of your Facebook contacts.
Enabling new ways to communicate with your Facebook friends is definitely one of Facebook’s goals. On the other hand, it will be very useful for Skype to extend its user base to Facebook’s 500+ million users.
