RUMOR: Facebook is Buying Skype...

Here is an interesting rumor to start off the day...
Word on the street is saying that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is in talks to buy or merge with Skype. The payout is estimated to be between $3 to $4 Billion USD.
Skype and Facebook are no strangers. Last October, when Skype released its version 5.0 software for Windows, it included a Facebook tab that let users chat or call Facebook friends via Skype, right from the Facebook newsfeed that can be viewed from within the Skype application. 
Facebook isn’t the only one chasing Skype. One of the sources talking to Reuters added that Google was also in “early talks” with Skype about a joint venture. 
What would this mean? Well, it could lead to Facebook being one step further into their mission in socially connecting the world and in turn... World Domination!
Skype integration within the Facebook application would be a well accepted feature with the majority of the users.
