Report: Facebook connecting with Skype
Facebook is having an event Wednesday, and one report says it will be to announce a partnership with Skype to support video chat.
In a post today, TechCrunch cited “a source with knowledge of the partnership” that Facebook will introduce an in-browser video-chatting feature that is “powered by Skype.”
I guess we will find out on Wednesday what is up Mark Zuckerberg’s sleeve. I’m not sure that video chat integration is that “awesome”, since you can list your Skype info on your Facebook profile already, if you wish. Facebook chat isn’t exactly the smoothest chat experience available. I’m also curious as to how Facebook will deal with the bandwidth requirements.
