Very interesting considering Mircosoft's purchase of Skype.

If it needs Skype installed on the same computer where you're using FB, it won't pick up too much. Also, will you need to login to Skype too? I think the big G outdid the FB, that is if I understand correctly that the video chat in FB wont be a native web app.
Also, video chat on FB probably means some more facial recognition training + a new voice recognition feature. I of one won't be using this.

I closed my account last week. Very happy and never have been more proud of myself:) Now, where do I go to claim back the time I wasted on Facebook?

Habtom I can't agree with you more. When I read the "Big News" my first thought was yahoo days when they hosted a chat. Remember those they were a waste of time and I see this as in the same class.

I don't know, my teen uses FB extensively, but switches to Skype and OOVOO to video chat with friends.
If you're a video chatter, this is a "+1" for FB.

Facebook video chat is one on one only, not group.

I've limited my account to include friends that I only interact with on a day-to-day basis, disabled myself from appearing in search results and so on.
I've got (just) 35-40 friends which means not much new happens, though I'm in touch with my normal (non-geek) friends without appearing to be an anti-social git; this means FB gets boring very quickly and I spend probably only around 5 minutes a day on it at most.
No app's/games/farms for me thanks :)

Typical responses from IT folks. :)
This is actually good news for Facebook users who may or may not already use Skype.
