Bizarre problem with a new install of Skype

I am really afraid that's the problem. Facebook made some changes in how
API works, or possibly doesn't let apps sign in to its api anymore.
So in short, the best way to see your Facebook contacts is to downgrade
to Skype 7.4 at least. Skype 7.4 however, does not let you set your
Skype moodtext as a Facebook status message from Skype Home.
