| 11/07/19 Social networking website Facebook has introduced video chat facility for its users.
Facebook will integrate Skype videoconferencing into its social networking service, striking a deal to cement its role as a hub for communications.
Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg said Facebook now has 750 million users. The new service, rolling out immediately, could be a huge boost for Skype, which currently has about 145 million regular users.
Skype, which was founded in 2003, allows people to make Internet phone calls and video calls at no charge and has also developed premium services.
Facebook s new offering could benefit Microsoft, which owns 1.6 percent of Facebook and announced its $8.5 billion purchase of Skype in May.
