Facebook and Skype deal to dial friends and family

(BBC)
Skype is integrating with Facebook to make it easier to call and video chat with friends and family on the social network. The new Skype for Windows will include a Facebook tab. This means that for the first time Skype users can keep up-to-date and interact with their Facebook news feed including posting status updates, commenting and liking directly from Skype. Added to that, the Facebook phonebook in Skype allows users to call and text Facebook friends directly on their mobile phones and landlines. And if your Facebook friend is also a Skype contact, then users can make free Skype-to-Skype calls.
