Facebook and Nokia are in talks to implement a mobile tool which could allow the social networking site to be built into phone handsets.

The two communication giants are exploring ways of integrating the popular website onto mobile phones in a similar fashion to the way YouTube is a staple feature of Apple's iPhone, reports website paidContent.

Under the deal the Finnish mobile phone firm would also give Facebook "a major slot" in its stores at its point of sale displays.

Furthermore, Nokia is also rumoured to be considering buying a small stake in the social networking phenomenon to strengthening its ties.

The talks follow a string of other content deals Nokia has clinched recently including a partnership with Universal Music to offer unlimited music downloads on certain devices that was announced last December.

In October 2007 Nokia revealed it had signed video deals with CNN, Sony Pictures and RooftopComedy.

Facebook already offers its own mobile application, which users can upload photos with as well as notes or use to write messages to their friends.
