Today, we're improving our Find Friends section to make it easier to find and follow the people you already know -- your friends on Facebook and connections on LinkedIn -- who use Twitter. Our Facebook app, which launched in 2007, now shows which of your Facebook friends are on Twitter and lets you follow them instantly and save them to a list. The app also lets you post your Tweets to your Facebook profile and now, to one of your Facebook pages too. With the Tweets application by LinkedIn, you can see which of your LinkedIn connections are on Twitter and follow the ones you choose right from the app. The app also lets you save your LinkedIn connections as a list, post your Tweets to LinkedIn, and add your Twitter account to your LinkedIn profile.
UPDATE: The Facebook app cannot currently access your Facebook friend list. We believe this is an issue on Facebook's end.

The war for friends. I recently noticed Facebook offers to add friends from Skype.

They should add friends from MSN Messenger.

No they shouldn't. Facebook should buy twitter and end the multi-site mashup silliness.
I still see facebook as a site with purpose and twitter as just a service. Messaging is also a service.

There are too many friends lists out there.
I just had a genius idea: someone needs to centralize this and allow you to move use a single account and a single friends list on different sites.
Basically add a friends function to OpenID
Too bad we can't even agree on a single ID system yet.
