Is there a way to get Skype to allow me to IM offline Facebook friends?

So when a contact goes offline, Skype tells me that I cannot IM someone because he is offline. So I’m thinking it’s weird that I can only IM Facebook friends who are online. So my question is: is there a way to make Skype let me to send IMs to offline Facebook contacts? A lot of my friends use mobile devices and Skype considers mobile usage as “Offline”, which I think is silly.

I am using the desktop version of Skype (6.3) on Windows 8 Pro.

    If your friend is offline on Facebook but available on Skype, you can instant message them Skype-to-Skype instead. If they use a different name on Facebook than Skype, you may have to ask them for their Skype Name to instant message them using Skype.
