Facebook possibly testing VoIP calls directly through its site

Facebook testing VoIP calls directly through their site?

By: Anthony Garreffa from Jan 26, 2011 @ 18:39 CST

A few Facebookers have today noticed a new "call" button when visiting their friends' profiles - clicking it did nothing so far, but the button is there in all it's glory.


The logical reason could be the Skype partnership that integrated your Facebook contacts. Now we're seeing it integrate directly into the Facebook site itself. Could it be? If it's true (and it seems to be) then it would be a great step forward. Now we just need some Facetime iPad 2 action and it would be some seriously heavy stuff.

Sorry for the Back to the Future gag, the latest episode of Fringe guest-starred Christopher Lloyd. Ha.
