Back to Skype. Skype was just purchased by Microsoft. What I am trying to grasp is how this development continued through the buyout. More importantly, now Microsoft is now even more intertwined with Facebook. First is Bing Maps on Business Pages. Now, Microsoft is technically the backbone of the video chat. I'm just going to go out on a limb and make the prediction right now, Microsoft and Facebook will either merge or continue to integrate until they defeat Google. Why? Both companies will gain with Google out of the picture. Microsoft will gain search usage through Bing. They already have Facebook integration through their search. Facebook will regain users who may jump ship for Google+. Here is another prediction... Facebook Ads on Microsoft Products. Think about it. Now to back up a little. Microsoft doesn't technically own Skype yet. According to Skype CEO, Tony Bates. I am writing this while the Q&A session is still in progress, so if they mention something that I miss feel free to let me know. Comment give me you feedback on the Microsoft & Facebook super partnership.
