Facebook Video Call. Could this be the new “reach out and touch someone?”

Just had my first Facebook Video Call with Jeff Zelaya. Yes, it works. He popped on the screen in a flash, but he’s so busy he popped off before I could get a screengrab.  So I called Alex de Carvalho. And here he is…looks just like FaceTime.

Here’s how to get going with Facebook Video Call:

– Log into Facebook.
– Go to : http://www.facebook.com/videocalling
– Go through the quick setup.
– Open up Facebook chat.
– Invite a friend to chat by clicking the video icon.

If you can’t do it just pry your nine year old from the Xbox 360 for about two minutes to set it up for you. Then you’ll be a click away from seeing and hearing your loved ones or your Facebook friends…who don’t screen your call. I think this could be the new “reach out and touch someone.” Do you?

    Thanks for the tip.
    Though I guess it would mean revealing myself as not a horse. Or a kangaroo.
