Yes, Skype is down, no it’s not just you
Skype is experiencing issues logging people in, and those who are logged in may find they are unable to change their status. Group messages are not being delivered, and calls are reported as problematic.
Twitter’s got a hashtag #SkypeDown which is turning into an amusing read.
From the Skype blog:

We have identified the network issue which prevented users from logging in and using Skype today. We’re in the process of reconnecting our users, and focused on restoring full service. The issue did not affect Skype for Business users.
For people who were not using Skype for business, chances are their pantsless cross-town Skype session just turned into a boopants Monday meeting – and that’s just terrible!
You can read the official Skype blog here. Hopefully they’ll have some info as to what caused this pants-wearing atrocity of a Monday outage.[BBC]
