Activision Blizzard has announced today that it will be officially linking its Battle.net service to social platform Facebook. As an example of the functionality, StarCraft II players will be able to add Facebook friends to their Battle.net friends list. Finally, you'll be able to easily join StarCraft skirmishes with all of those people from high school you you either a) don't remember or b) never spoke to, but they added you on Facebook anyhow.
The functionality will soon be added to the ongoing StarCraft II beta test, and is expected to ship alongside the game, which was just dated for July 27.
