Call me!

Hey, you know what I think 2011 needs? More Facebook. I don't think I spend enough of my time on Facebook right now. It's not enough that they can now run my email; what about phone calls? Can I make those through Facebook, please?

In the unlikely event that these sounds like your feelings, this news will be of interest. Facebook might just be about to launch the ability to call your friends over the internet.

A few users have seen a new 'call' button appear on their friends' pages in the last couple of days. The button doesn't do anything, but glitches like this usually turn out to be Facebook testing a feature that isn't quite ready yet.

Could this be the latest result of that deal with Skype that Facebook made last year? Sure looks like it....
