Skype allows users to add friends to their contacts lists so that they can place calls and chat with each other at their own convenience. To easily find your friends, you can use Skype's built-in import feature that helps you discover Skype users from your accounts at other existing websites, such as Facebook, Hotmail, Gmail, MSN and many other popular services. The program uses a safe and secure method of transferring the contact information and protect your privacy.
