There appears to be an interesting development within Facebook as reports suggest both the social network and Skype will be partnering with each other. If this happens users will be able send SMS and call Facebook friends from their Skype Messenger.
That’s not it, Facebook users will have the video chat feature. This isn’t shaping up out of nowhere and the social network had been planning similar integrations for quite some time. The idea, as always is to amass users from other platforms and make Facebook the center of all web activity. Although video chat feature has been brought to us via numerous Facebook applications but they haven’t really been impressive to become the first choice for users.
This makes it ever more important for Facebook to partner with larger instant messaging / communication service to provide its enormous userbase with better voice and video chat features. Though there has been no word officially on this from either Facebook or Skype, we are on the lookout for more on this and will report as we are updated.
