Rumor: Facebook Launching Skype Video Chat This Week

If you thought Facebook couldn’t get any bigger….prepare to take your words back.

Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg hinted that “something awesome” would be integrated into Facebook chat later this week: Skype!  There will now be an in browser video chat that is powered by Skype, though its not known if you will need to download the program in order for it to work.

Skype was recently bought by Microsoft for $8.5 million.  Facebook and Microsoft are known to be friendly when it comes to business matters, so this could end up being a beneficial venture for both companies.

What do you think of this new integration into Facebook chat?

  1. That will be interesting, considering that I already spend a lot of time on Skype, with someone in the world. With 4800 + friends on Facebook, I’m just glad that they all don’t message me, at once.
