Facebook And Google Looking At A Potential Deal With Skype

An interesting little tidbit coming out of Reuters just now, with reports that both Facebook and Google are contemplating deals with online communication firm, Skype.


Citing their own sources, Reuters believes Facebook is considering a buyout as well as a join-venture deal with Skype after the Luxembourg outfit delayed its IPO.

The same sources believe Google is also looking into a potential joint venture, though nobody is saying which company Skype is favoring at this time.

Auction firm eBay has already had a go at bringing Skype to the masses with no success, though both Facebook and Google have wildly different audiences to that of eBay.
