Facebook launches video chat

Facebook bought Skype earlier this year. It has now launched video chat on Facebook.

Facebook is launching a service that it hopes will encourage more people to use video-calling.

At present the Skype-powered service will be for one-on-one conversations (in contrast to Google+ which enables group chats via Hangouts) and is accessible via a single click.
