Skype Adds Facebook for Mac Users

Posted on 9.17.2011

Skype has finally integrated Facebook into its services for Macs.

The new beta version of Skype for Macs gives users the ability to message and call Facebook friends as well as view a Facebook newsfeed that is reformatted for the Skype desktop application.

Skype 5.4 for Macs allows a user’s Skype account to connect with their Facebook account, and import everyone from their friends list to their Skype contacts. The contact page also breaks down everyone into categories, to separate Facebook friends from Skype users.

The newsfeed feature allows users to like and comment on statuses, as well as post their own statuses.

These new features for Mac users have already been available for Window users for almost a year.

Another addition for Skype 5.4 is the inclusion of ads on the home screen for non-paying Skype users. These ads can be seen above the activity timeline of Skype contacts and Facebook friends.
