Today connecting with your friends is easy. There is no need to write snail mails if your friends or family live far away from you. You do not need to catch a train or drive to your friend’s place just to ask a question. Today’s technology allows you to catch up and talk with your loved ones easily.
Through e-mails and social media networking sites, such as Facebook, you can also strike a conversation with any of your friends. You just need to be connected to them on Facebook by adding them as friends. After doing this you can see all of their updates and now what is happening to them. You can even have a one-on-one conversation with them through the Facebook Chat.
Chatting with your loved ones is very easy to do, but on Facebook you can take it a step further and do video calls. Video calling allows you to see your friend who is on the other side of the conversation. However, for you to be able to do this you and your friend or loved one will need to install the current version of the Facebook video calling plugin to your browser.
