Facebook Video Call

Facebook Video Call is the coolest addition to things that you can do with Facebook. After being addicted to farmville, facebook chat, other apps and etc., Facebook just recently launched their facebook video chat.

Well now you no longer have to log in to your Skype or Yahoo Messenger account just for you to chat and see your friends live! Facebook already integrated a video chat so that you can easily get in touch with your friends without leaving Facebook. With the help of Skype Facebook already now has its own dedicated Facebook video calling app.

I've already given it a try and I video chatted with my brother (forgot to screen capture his ugly face tho' lol). Since we Filipinos are well known to dig social networks (like friendster) a lot of you may already immediately checked your chat box and tried to video call someone.
