Using Skype with Facebook, was RE: DELETING OR CLEARING SKYPE MESSAGES
skypeenglish at lists.tffppodcast.com (Marius Swart via Skypeenglish)...
Dear list. It?s still possible to use Skype with Facebook, but it?s no longer possible to update your Facebook status or read your news feeds in Skype.
One can still respond to chat messages sent via Facebook, because they still appear as chat messages in Skype. The only difference now is that, since Facebook contacts no longer show up in the contact list in Skype, the chat has to be initiated by the other person. If you want to start the conversation yourself, you need to go to the Facebook website and send them a private message.
Incidentally, Skype Talking still reports status changes of Facebook contacts, even though they don?t show in Skype itself.
Hope this helps.

Actually it was facebook that got rid of their api. for third party access not microsoft. They are doing this with several ios apps I use, but I just use the m.facebook.com <http://m.facebook.com> thing so I don't have to use skype to access anything.

Please don?t take this the wrong way, but I think Microsoft should let people choose the way they want to use skype, because when you use a screen reader, the program needs to be more accessible so they won?t have to use third-party access right?

All correct what you're saying Marius, I only add that SkypeWatch also
reports signins or signouts of your Facebook contacts if the relative
checkboxes in Tools / Options / Notifications settings are enabled.
