Facebook video chat is the sweetest thing I have seen as a feature of Facebook.com for many years. It almost beats the status in my opinion. With the new add on comes an almost seamless video chat display. Its simple, and high quality. For some reason, it has a better screen resolution than Yahoo Messenger or even a regular Skype video chat. Even though this is totally a part of Skype. The audio quality is super amazing, and the rendering of the pixels is blazing fast.
Its just nice you know? Before, Facebook offered a way to connect with your friends and family. It was something special in a way because this service offered something that civilization had never experienced before; constant communication between you and the people you know. What’s even cooler is that you can now video chat with your friends and family with ease. I want to video chat with a few friends right now. I want to experience some of what I am missing. Their real live lives. Its a pretty amazing experience. I know its soon, but I think they should definitely enhance this program by enabling group chat for up to 5 people. Could you imagine getting back together with your old click from high school. I live 3000 miles away from my friends in Houston, and to be able to hang out on a tuesday night and play some online cards and video chat over some wine would be so much fun!
While Facebook has done something incredible within the last 24 hours, I still think that the new social network, Google Plus with the Circles system, is going to kick Facebooks butt the same way Facebook killed Myspace just a few years back. We all know that we have been patiently waiting for a better social network. Facebook has so many bugs, and Google has never given me a problem! Plus, Google is already cool and will forever have an impact on the USA. Over a million people are googling right now, at this very second. So the hype is there, and I hope Google brings it. The only way Facebook can survive is if they completely redesign the system, and add some more flair. A Facebook 2.0.
