The biggest social networking site in the world, Facebook has launched a video chat application yesterday. Joining the social media giant is Skype, which was just recently bought by Microsoft for some 8.5 billion dollars. This mutually beneficial deal provides Facebook access to a great free video service which offers more user interaction, and Skype with a connection to the worlds largest social networking infrastructure.
This business deal is going to stir up much competition with the launch of Google’s social networking site “Google+” which implemented hangout group chat with up to 10 people. This is a huge deal in the fight for the top web based business between Facebook, Microsoft, and Google.
Let me know your thoughts of the video chat services.
Have you tried it out? Do you think it’s a good idea or more of an invasion of privacy?
