    I'd wager most people don't connect their facebook accounts to Skype and should be safe. I personally don't see a point of connecting a facebook account to Skype.

    This also requires you to have a friend with malicious intent.

    I don't know any Skype users that interface with Facebook at the same time.
    That said, this should not assume that some do.

    Have sent out a request if any do this. Otherwise the service is generally safe less the third party online EasyBits Media Games :ouch:
