Facebook to forge Web phone deal with Skype?


Facebook is trying to work out a deal to integrate Skype's Internet phone service into the social network's site, according to reports. Citing unnamed sources, The Wall Street Journal reports that the deal is expected to be announced in the next few weeks, would enable Facebook users to have a voice chat and video chat with their Facebook friends using Skype services.

Neither Facebook nor Skype would comment on the reports. The move would again pit Facebook against Google, which announced last month that it would offer the ability to make phone calls over the Internet via its popular Gmail service.
