Back in September, Skype debuted a new Skype 5.4 for Mac Beta offering Facebook integration in the form of chat and news feed support. The company has now expanded that integration to include support for Facebook video calling.
Initiating a Facebook-to-Facebook call from within Skype is quite easy; all you need to do is connect your Skype and Facebook accounts. Then, select a Facebook friend and hit the video call button in Skype- your friend simply picks up the call from Facebook. This new feature lets you maintain social connections with your Facebook friends and compliments previously announced features such as being able to see when your Facebook friends are online, read their status updates and IM them all from Skype.
Skype is a free download and service, although the company also offers a premium subscription service offering such features as group video calling and group screen sharing.

Agree totally with livman and arkitect
Some sarcasm is fine - but gratuitously cruel posts really stink.:(
As my father used to say - you missed a perfect opportunity to keep your mouth shut.:rolleyes:
We need Facetime on Windows, HTC, Android, etc. With Microsoft now owning Skype and this Facebook integration (not that I care about Facebook at all), all signs are pointing at Skype getting a too strong foothold as a closed standard.
