Facebook has announced that it is working with Skype to add video to its messaging services.

The social networking site already shares some some instant messaging tools with Skype, and will now look to include video chat as well.

No definite time table was set for the roll out of the service, but in a company blog post, Facebook said that it would be available to "everyone over the next few weeks".

The service will only connect two users at a time, unlike Google's Hangouts service. Google launched its own social networking site, Google + last week.
