Facebook, to retain its top position in the social networking arena, has partnered with skype and introduced a new feature – Facebook Video Calling (will be available soon) and group chat (where you can chat with more than 10 of your friends at the same time)

Video calling Features:

Video calling allows you to talk to your friends face to face. Some of the features/options are

Video Message : If your friend isn’t available, you can always leave a video message.

Call records : The time and date of each call you make is listed in your ongoing message history with each friend. The calls themselves are not recorded or saved.

Multi-tasking : You can continue using chat and other Facebook features during your video call.

One Time Setup : Complete a quick, one-time setup, and call any friend on Facebook.

Some of the common features to that of chat and other notable things to be considered:
Callers : Only your confirmed friends can call you on Facebook video Calling. You also have the option to ignore any call you receive.

Unavailable : You can make yourself unavailable for video calling if you are not interested in video calling – same to the chat feature

Block : You can block a friend or group of friends from calling or chatting with you or you can unfriend the person

End Call : To end a video call, just close the video window.  

Compatibility : Video calling works best with the latest versions of the following browsers: Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Safari

Operating System Support :  Mac or Windows operating system. Video calling for Linux is not currently supported.

How It works:

  • Make sure your webcam and microphone are both up and running – Visit your friend’s profile and click the “Call” button in the top right corner or you can also click the video icon at the top of your chat window.

  • You will be asked to complete the setup the first time you try to call a friend, or the first time a friend tries to call you.
  • Simply click the “Set Up” button and follow the instructions for how to set up video calling on your browser.
  • Once you’ve successfully completed the setup, the call you’ve started with your friend should connect automatically. If it doesn’t, you can call again by clicking the video icon at the top of your chat window.
