Well Google may have launched its Google+ Social Network (get your invite here) but facebook is not going to get it easy for Google afterall.
After the launch of Google Plus with such media hype facebook went ahead to launch its own next big thing – Facebook Video Calling which you might already know as “awesome”.
Well it surely does meet to its name as we are very sure that it is awesome and will make facebook the default social platform of choice for all users. Period.
We did have our opinions at some point that Google’s Hangout place was gonna make it worthwhile to enter Google+ as it offered group video calling for over 10 persons at the same. But now with Facebook offering the same thing with even better way … i think Google+ juts got kicked in the balls !!
We have emebed the video where Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg launches Facebook Video Calling. You should definitely watch the video where Zuckerberg shares some great insights about the past 5 years as well as the next 5 years of Social Media !!
And in case you havent got the time to watch the full video, here’s the summary of it:
- The last 5 years of social media has been all about user growth
- Zuckerberg says, “The driving narrative for the next 5 years won’t be about wiring up the world” … “Companies that are really best in class are thinking about how can we offer our product and do it in a social way, with social infrastructure. One thing that is really important is how do you measure these things. The next five years won’t really be about measuring active users.”
- Facebook is already one of the biggest chat network in the whole world
- He believes (and so do we) that all apps of the future will be social
- Facebook partners with Skype which recently got acquired by Microsoft for Video Calling
- Over 750 Million Active Facebook users to to be able to use Video Calling powered by Skype which itself has over 170 million users
- You don’t need to install any software. Its gonna be a web only feature and can be used through its plugin
- No need to open skype account making it even more easy
- Start Video Chat with just the hit of a button
