If you think there’s nothing more to Skype but only make and record Skype video calls, you should know more. Activate that Facebook button in your Skype to enjoy both’s features in one window; or you could try the other way around using your Facebook.

Skype in Facebook
The video call feature that you see in your Facebook’s chatboxes are powered by Skype. So whenever you want to see and call some of your Facebook friends, just click that button.
- In your Facebook page, click on a contact whom you wish to call from the contacts bar on the right side
- Click the video call button that you will see on the upper right side of the chat box
Even though you can use the video call feature with your Facebook account, you can’t make video calls unless you have the latest version of Skype installed in your desktop. Also, some of Skype’s features aren’t available for Facebook such as group video calls, sharing screens, sending files and sending SMS.
Skype in Facebook or Facebook with Skype? What’s your choice? Anyway, whichever you choose guarantees you to make video calls and send messages. Just don’t forget to have a webcam.
