      Couldn't agree more there, so many changes are going to be coming to Facebook now and for sure if you take a look at Google + when it opens to the public you can guarantee that there will be alot of similarities. Still haven't got into there yet myself, not looking too good as every time I look it says they have a back log.

      I think Google+'s Hangouts is more unique compare to Facebook and Skype's video calling since with Google+, you can do video conferencing for not just one friend but for a couple of them.
      You're right admin, maybe when Google+ is already released, we can find some similarities between the two sites but I think, for my opinion, Google+ will be a blast :lol:

      Seems like it was only a matter of time 'til Facebook got Video chat, this partnership makes a lot of sense, we'll see how it plays out with the Google+ rivalry.

      I think this is an additional great feature to Facebook. And FB users are gonna love this.
      Here, we always use yahoo messenger for chatting and there are a few who doesn't use it. Instead, they use FB to chat. Now, they would be able to see their friends as well.

      I don't chat there a lot, though I might try it soon.

      I agree with you. Look at Myspace, it is a replica of Facebook now. Now I just find it very confusing.

      I would enjoy the Skype feature since most of my friends and family are on Facebook. Who needs to call them now when there is Skype? Awesome addition.

      It was exciting to see new developments and features of Facebook as well as to see whether Google+ will be a popular social networking site too. Video chat is a good idea and a friend of mine had tired it.
