I bought a new laptop with skype installed in it. when I sign in I can not see any option where I can link facebook. does not matter if it is before login or after login. I tried every thing including visiting skype.com- login there and tried to change my account settings to recognise facebook as it does my live account. Some Body Please Look Into This. skype on win XP is better than this.

Linking with Facebook is not supported on the “modern” version of Skype application for Windows 8. You can install the “normal” Skype desktop version, where all Skype features are still available.

 

The currently latest 6.7.0.102 Skype desktop version can be installed using this msi-installer:
