Facebook And Skype Say "Call Me Now" With New Integration

With its over 750,000 users around the world, Facebook has just launched a number of new communications services including ad hoc group chat, a new chat design, and video calling powered by Skype.  Skype of course is owned by Microsoft and is a major share owner in Facebook.  So now users will be able to video call their friends directly from Facebook on a one-to-one basis, however Skype will charge for group video chat.  Friends can also leave each other video voicemails, which is a really cool feature.
