Using Skype

Guest Author - Debbie Jackson

Have you experienced live video chatting with your friends or family? If you are unfamiliar with Skype, it is a live video contact site where you can see the people you are chatting with on your computer as long as both parties have a Skype account, computer and webcam as well. Downloading the application to your computer is pretty simple.

Skype became a popular option application for video chatting since they began offering their free basic video application which is their foundation product. Skype initially offered only free service but now has developed more applications to include business usage as well as offering internet calling options at various levels of cost depending on the plan chosen.

Uses for Skype at the simplest level include keeping in touch with friends and family members individually or on a more advanced level using video conference where you can have a small get together via each member’s home computer connecting on your computer screen.

If you have a household member that travels consistently, it is a great way to stay “close” by seeing each other’s face daily and maintaining communication visually not just verbally. This is a great way for the children to see an absent parent or keep the closeness of a grandparent or favorite relative.
Skype has broadened their offerings to include internet calling numbers to decrease long distance calling costs as well.

Businesses usage includes the ability to hold group discussions via the computer from various parts of the country or world helping to reduce travel time costs and meeting expenses. You can share information by screen sharing.
Another video application available for the novice user is the GSP10 from Globalinx, which includes all of the above features plus you can record audio during call. This service also has an application available for download onto your cellular phones that is compatible with your lap top or computer. Video calls can be placed phone to phone as well as on the computer with the proper applications downloaded onto the device.

If you have not tried video calling, you should try it and you will “see” a great way to keep in touch verbally and visually. Technology continues to improve methods of communication and making it easier to stay in touch whether you are home, at work or on vacation anywhere in the world you are as close to one another as only a call or a click of a mouse away.
