New Facebook Integration with Skype 5.4 for Mac OS X Beta

Hi all,

 

A cool new Beta has been just been released: 

 

You may have noticed that we now release updates for Skype for Mac quicker than ever before. We’ve released a number of updates in 2011 which included, amongst other features, a brand new interface, video call control bar and HD-quality video calling.

 

Today we’re launching Skype for Mac 5.4 Beta. The launch introduces the same Facebook integration found in Skype 5.5 for Windows. We are excited to finally deliver Facebook integration to our Mac users.

 

Just like in our Windows client, you will now be able to IM and connect with your Facebook friends without leaving Skype. You will also be able to read and update your News Feed, as well as comment and ‘Like’ your Facebook friends’ posts – all within Skype for Mac. To connect to Facebook, simply sign into Skype , click on the Connect to Facebook tab and enter your Facebook sign in details.

We are also introducing an advertising platform in this new release, but if you are a paying Skype consumer or have Skype Credit, you won’t see any display ads; similar to the model that is currently being used in our Skype for Windows client.

 

As always, we kindly ask that you download Skype 5.4 for Mac OS X Beta now to experience all that Skype for Mac has to offer.

Oh no! Please no more useless features in Skype. It is eating too much CPU even without Facebook stuff.

I guess the Facebook integration is to be found in the Skype Start section. When i open Skype, it goes there but it's empty. It even crashes the app when going there from your profile section.
