Facebook users get Video Calls, Multi-user chat and more

The news has spread about Mark Zuckerberg’s announcements a few hours ago… but what exactly is Facebook releasing?

Quite simply they covered 4 main topics.

  1. One-to-One Video calling with a built-in Skype technology.
    • On first use a user will need to download a small application to allow Skype integration.
    • Get started by heading to http://www.facebook.com/videocalling and clicking the ‘Get Started’ button.
  2. A new Facebook Chat design.
  3. Group chat without the use of Groups
    • Quickly invite online friends to live chat conversations.
    • This is expected to be rolled out throughout today.
  4. Facebook now has 750 million users, but sharing is the key to the success of the network.

All-in-all we expected the Video-Calling, but the Group chat and new Chat interface are pleasant surprises.
