Skype for Mac Mood Message Feed

Why isn’t anybody writing about the “Mood Message Feed” in Skype for Mac 2.8? This version appears to have been out for a month now. I Googled it to see whether it was a Mac-specific thing or if the real version has it as well and I just haven’t updated to the latest version. There were 4 results (not including the ones that Google hid).

It says it’s a pseudo chat, showing the mood updates that your contacts make. It’s kind of like the Facebook News Feed (or whatever they are calling the home page this week). The top result talks about sending your mood messages to Twitter, so I guess this Mood Message Feed is a way for Skype to try and stay relevant in the “Twitter age”.
