Skype is launching Skype 5.4 for Mac Beta with the same Facebook integration found in Skype 5.5 for Windows, the new update lets you IM and connect with your Facebook friends without leaving Skype. You can read and update your News Feed, comment and Like your Facebook friends’ posts, all within Skype for Mac OS X Beta and for connect to Facebook, simply sign into Skype, click on the Connect to Facebook tab and enter your Facebook sign in details. With Windows installed on the Lion‘s share of computers worldwide, most cross-platform apps are updated with those using Microsoft’s operating system as a priority, while the Mac release tends to trail somewhat. Much like the Windows release before it, it includes a few basic functions such as chat, as well as the ability to view status updates from friends lists and update your own. It is far from being a fully-fledged alternative to logging in via your browser, although Skype is in the process of adding new features whereby most of the day-to-day Facebook functions can be achieved at desktop level. Within the Mac beta release, there is also a sign that Ballmer and Gates are eager to recoup some of that cash as soon as feasibly possible, with users being gently ushered towards purchasing subscription or credits to remove ads.
