Facebook Likes Skype

7:25 AM -- As anticipated, Facebook announced late Wednesday that it has integrated video chat into its social media platform with the help of Skype Ltd. , so upping the ante in the battle with Google (Nasdaq: GOOG) for the world's billions of users.

The move also takes Facebook closer to Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT), which is in the throes of acquiring Skype. (See Facebook Wednesday .)

For the details, check out this Facebook blog and this report on the new service from our sister publication InformationWeek.
