Skype Coming to Facebook

Facebook members will soon, not only be able to post status updates and photos, they will be able to video chat live with other members. It's expected that an announcement will come Wednesday that the social network site will launch a video chat product powered by Skype that works inside browsers. It's unclear whether Skype software will have to be downloaded by users or not. This arrangement involves Microsoft because the company is not only is a Facebook shareholder, it has a pending agreement to acquire Skype. It's unclear yet what possibilities exist in the new system for video relay.
