Facebook Uses Skype Technology To Allow Members Do Video Chat

Video chat isn’t new at all!  In fact, I think it has been around for couple years or more already!  In fact, Skype started videotelephony since 2005, and so we know video chat has been around for at least six years or more.  According to Wikipedia, by 2010 Skype already had 663 millions of users, and so we know video chat was very widespread before now.  So why the partnering up between Facebook and Skype creates so much lively conversations and noises on the web?  I think partly because Facebook is now going to be able to bring video chat to so many Facebook users at once.  Plus, Facebook touts that video chat on Facebook is so easy that anybody could do it (i.e., one, two, click and there you go, without needing any technical knowledge).  Check out the video below where Facebook talks about its video chat capability!
