How to Facebook Video Chat with Skype : Skype To Facebook

Where do you spend most of your time, is it the Park, Stadium, Gym or your office ? Well, actually I know the answer. It is social networking sites. The social networking sites have grown pretty big. And why not, be it playing games, chatting with friends, checking out pictures, videos, sharing your feelings everything is done at these social networking sites. Three names in Social Networking are very very popular, "Google Plus/Circles", "Twitter" and "Facebook".

And Facebook is a clear winner among three. We all are used to likes, shares, chatting with friends on facebook. What about video and voice calling. We are still tied up with the old voip softwares like Skype, ooVoo and Tango for these activities. What if these can be integrated to your facebook account, which allows you to video chat with your facebook friends.

At the time we wrote this post (after Microsoft taking over Skype), Video chat on facebook was not available.

Only time will tell if it is a rumor or will turn out to be a real thing! Few things are not clear, whether people will be asked to download skype client to enjoy video calls on facebook, or do we need to be Skype users to use this facebook video chat feature. These answers will get solved only with time. Technology is advancing at great pace and its all good for us.
