"Skype's new release, Skype 5.0, came with Facebook integration, meaning you can access your Facebook account directly from the new Skype application interface," writes Nadeem Unuth on his VoIP blog.

"Are also integrated several features that favor unified communications. You can for instance make calls to your Facebook contacts directly from your Skype application if they have their phone numbers in their profiles, using your SkypeOut credit.
