Um... cool feature, but how is this exciting news that they felt the need to build hype over? Especially after last week's announcement of Google+'s hangout feature. To sum up my reaction to this announcement, one word, two letters: Eh.

Although I can see why both companies choose to do so, I don't fancy all these tie-up with one another, frankly! It's like having your bank a/c and your other investments all under one roof! Makes me wary of all the privacy issues and Lehman Brothers scenarios!

I don't keep any personal info on my Facebook or Skype, so I'm not too worried, but maybe with other accounts, I would be!

Well, if you use Skype as extensively as I do, you'd. Skype has all the contacts' phone numbers, etc...

I think my Facebook has way more phone numbers and addresses than my Skype does, lol! :P
