Video Chat Service by Facebook and Skype
Till now, Facebook users could best update messages and profiles and share pictures. With the addition of the video chat facility, the fun is all set to go a step further. Facebook, in collaboration with Skype, will soon unveil the video chat feature primarily powered by Skype.
The strategic move is said to strengthen Facebook’s already commanding position in the social networking sector. Facebook at present is the most used of all social networking sites across the globe with 500 million active users.
Skype and Facebook go back together in time. Last year in September, rumors emerged about a possible alliance, most of which ultimately got dismissed as hearsay.
The new product has supposedly been built on Skype with a special desktop component being included. An official announcement is expected to be made soon at the Palo Alto headquarters of Facebook.
