The largest social networking website on the planet, Facebook will introduce Skype video chat into its social networking service that will enable the 750 million users of the popular website to connect with friends via video and not just with the wall posts and the pokes that have been the mainstay of Facebook. The agreement was announced by chief executive Mark Zuckerberg at the headquarters of Facebook on Wednesday, deepens its coöperation with Microsoft corporation, which is in the process of purchasing Skype for US$8.5-billion. The new service will allow users to video chat with their friends through Skype and have group chats within friend groups as well to plan their night out. The re-designed chat layout will include a sidebar that will list the people you message the most, for easy access. Facebook is also planning multi-person chat. This is a highly requested feature and if you want to decide something, just add everyone in the chat room and decide together. It will be interesting to see how Google will react to this, as they are rolling out their own service named Google+.
