Facebook call

A site AroundThe reported they "a friend in Israel, when clicked on the call button, a Facebook box opened with the word "calling" next to the icon of his friend. Sadly the call failed to connect and our tipster tells us he doesn't believe his friend even got a notification of the call. A few minutes later, the button disappeared from his facebook."

The site further says "other Israeli Facebook users have seen the mysterious calling icon, which may indicate that Facebook is working with an Israeli VoIP firm to implement it."
