Facebook and Skype In Integration Partnership Talks [kara.allthingsd.com]
according to sources close to the situation, Facebook and Skype are poised to announce a significant and wide-ranging partnership that will include integration of SMS, voice chat and Facebook Connect.

The move by the pair–which have tested small contact importer integrations before–is a natural one for the social networking giant, which is aiming to be the central communications and messaging platform for its users, across a range of media.

Interesting times ahead with Facebook - they seem to be on the hunt for the next app/partnership that will help keep them relevant over the next few years.

Great news. A friend of mine just couple of weeks back was telling me that he saw some upcoming birthday reminders on Skype. The game is all poised!

What?! This is a very amazing news. I can't wait to experience such a collaboration of the two. The champion of social networking and the champion of instant messaging and video calls. Wow! its a wonderful experience.
