skype facebook news feed
Skype today announced the release of a new Skype 5.4 for Mac beta, offering integration with Facebook to allow users to chat with Facebook friends and view and interact with their Facebook news feeds right in the Skype application.

Just like in our Windows client, you will now be able to IM and connect with your Facebook friends without leaving Skype. You will also be able to read and update your News Feed, as well as comment and 'Like' your Facebook friends' posts - all within Skype for Mac. To connect to Facebook, simply sign into Skype, click on the Connect to Facebook tab and enter your Facebook sign in details.

Skype 5.4 for Mac is also introducing ads to the platform for the first time, although Skype Premium subscribers and those with Skype Credit on their accounts will not be subjected to the new display ads.

I'll post the obligatory "Screw you Skype, hire an interface designer. I'm staying on 2.8"

And that's that.

I too like posting smug comments about how I don't use Facebook in an attempt to sound better than others.

hmm lets see

upgrade Skype so I can view Facebook the same as if I was in safari and have ads in Skype + ads in Facebook (no ad blocker in Skype)

or

stay on the current public version with no ads and use safari with adblock for Facebook and have zero advertising experience

hmmm :P

----------

Let's see if they gonna change my mind on using skype more often! Cuz I really don't like skype lol

I wish iChat was available on more platforms so I could actually use it to talk to the majority of my friends lol

Why oh why does Facebook feel like they have to be part of every aspect of our lives?

Next thing is going to be a Facebook integrated toaster. Whenever you make toast, Facebook updates your status about toast. Then all your "friends" can comment on your toast, and how they also like toast, and where the best places to get toast are, and how everyone does something different with their toast, but the fact that we all like toast brings us all a little bit closer together in this big ol' world, and if it weren't for Facebook, we wouldn't have ever realized how much mundane **** we have in common!

YAY! :rolleyes:
