The partnership comes as competition heats up in the Internet market, with Facebook and Google, Twitter and many other social networking sites work for billions of dollars in online advertising revenue.
By incorporating video chat into facebook, facebook has given its members another reason to use the site for longer periods.
“They need to continue to keep their users engaged and coming back everyday”.
Facebook’s Skype service, initially limited to one-to-one video chat, will be free.
