Skype on Mac just received an update – a newly-released beta version of the popular VoIP service is now available. After adding HD video calling, a few months ago, the latest version, i.e Skype for Mac Beta 5.4 integrates the popular social networking platform, Facebook more deeply into Skype. According to an official announcement, Skype users on Mac will be able to message and call their Facebook contacts. Additionally, it also features the popular 'News Feed' feature on Facebook right within the Skype application on the desktop. Users will be able to use the 'News Feed' on Skype, just the way they would on Windows – they can read feeds, update their own, comment and/or 'like' the posts of their contacts.
Now, integrate Facebook into Skype
To begin, all that users would have to do is sign into their Skype account, click on the tab called 'Connect to Facebook' and add their Facebook log in details. Another addition, which will only be visible to the non-paying Skype users would be the inclusion of display ads.
