  • I welcome Skype facebook integration but I didn’t like it much..
    I upgraded my skype to Skype 5.0 and integrated facebook into skype..
    Here are few problem which I have found:
    It doesn’t automatically refresh the feed
    Video links open in browser tab…

    More over stop script error which happened to me twice in last 2 hours…
    Over all it’s good to have facebook on your skype but again, they should make it bug free..
    One important feature which I would like to suggest would be:
    They have phone book feature that’s good but for that we need to have skype credit, facebook should add a column to
    enter skype ID, that will make this integration perfect!!

    • mmm Harsh you were right there are some bugs which they need to fix,
      I had seen some more bugs in it which sometime makes my mind out of control.

      I am sure they will fix these bugs in coming updates 🙂
