    At last, Facebook released its newest feature, Facebook Video Call. Worked together with Skype, now Facebook is available for you to communicate using Video Chat service just like Video Calls or Video Conference on Skype. Actually, this video chat rumor have been heard from a year ago, but now finally this feature is available for all Facebook user all around the world.

    The cooperation between Facebook and Skype doesn’t make the Facebook users to have or to make Skype account to make a video call to their friends. And also, Facebook users don’t need to install any additional application to use this video chat, all they have to do is to just install a plug-in on Facebook, since this video calling feature is browser-based and users can simply use it.

    Facebook’s video chat feature also supports multiple users video call (Group Video Chat), but Skype will give an extra payment for this. However, it’s completely free if you chat with just only a friend.

    To start using this Video Calling feature, visit and then click Get Started button

    You can follow this steps to activate Facebook’s Video Chat :

    1.    Enter this address : Facebook Video Calling
    2.    Click this button : Get Started
    3.    You will be directed to “Facebook Video Call Plug-in” link

    4.    Right after you’ve finished the download and installed Facebook Video Call Plug-in, you are being able to make a video call by clicking the camera icon displayed on the chat window.

    What you need to use this feature is there’s WebCam/ Camera on your laptop or your PC, and both user have activated the video chat feature.

    We see that it’s interesting to have this new feature on Facebook. What seem obvious is, this kind of feature is giving more enjoyment for social media users.

      I can’t find the video calling icon anywhere. I tried it with Firefox and a friend, it worked for one day, now is gone. What is with this crap?

      I think the whole thing is a hoax. Facebook lied about it being ready. Crap.

      I stumbled on your blog on and I’m very glad I did. I feel as though you’re reading my mind right now.
      You appear to know a great deal about this, as if
      you wrote the book on it or something like that. While I think some extra media
      like some pics or a couple of videos, this will be a fantastic resource.
      I will most definitely come back.
