FaceBook is so popular that everyone has an account, or if you aren’t on FaceBook yet, I am sure some of your family or friends have probably encouraged you to get an account. I don’t blame them, it is a wonderful site to connect with your friends and family who are living far away from you. You can share photos, status updates, laugh at old times, comment and like each other’s wall posts, etc… You can even play games together to either compete or help each other out in the thousands of social games available to members of the site. Besides, it is not that hard to join, all one needs to do is sign up and membership is free.
Another good reason for you to join the site is that you can now call each other for free. If you own an iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch or an Android phone, all you need to do is download a mobile application called Vonage. When you have downloaded the application, you just need to connect your FaceBook account and you are set. Data charges will apply so make sure that you connect to a Wifi available nearest you. You also don’t need a new number, your phone numbers won’t be needed, just your FaceBook account. By the way, you can only call friends who have downloaded the application, similar to that of Skype. I have included a video here which explains how the entire application works. Now you can really connect!
