Facebook Experimenting With Voice Calling

first_imgTags:#Facebook#voice#web Nothing in the image indicates a Skype partnership, but with last Fall’s “deep integration” in mind, we thought it would be the most likely partner-in-crime. When we last wrote about the Facebook-Skype partnership, we wrote “What we’re really hoping to see from this partnership are Skype buttons on Facebook that launch Skype calls and SMS capabilities.” This would go beyond Skype buttons, with direct integration. We asked Skype if it had anything to do with it, to which we received a “no comment.” A Facebook spokesperson offered a standard response, saying “We don’t comment on rumor and speculation and have nothing to announce at this time.”The move would make a lot of sense for Facebook, which has worked recently to become the center of your online communication experience. Its recent “not email” announcement debuted a form of communication that would supposedly work seamlessly between devices, so that there would be little differentiation between messaging, email and Facebook chat. Voice calling between users, whether from browser to browser, phone to browser, or browser to phone, would just make sense in creating a more seamless communication experience.Have you seen the “call” button on your Facebook? Have you clicked it? Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification mike melanson Last September, news broke that Facebook and VoIP service Skype were about to announce a “deep integration partnership” that would bring integration of SMS and voice chat. A couple weeks later, we got Skype 5.0, which included an integrated Facebook phonebook and browsing, but we asked when we would see the opposite – Skype integration on Facebook.Today, The Daily What has an image from a tipster that shows a feature similar to what we were hoping for – voice calling integrated on Facebook.According to The Daily What, their tipster wrote them, saying “So I was just chatting on Facebook chat and I got the option to ‘call’ my friend. it swiftly disappeared.” Take a look at the screenshot: The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Related Posts Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Auditlast_img read more

Stylish Sonia dazzled at PM’s dinner

first_imgWhile all eyes are on Michelle Obama’s wardrobe during her India visit, Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, too, made some style news.Congress chief Sonia Gandhi sported a bright coloured sari during her meeting with US President Barack Obama on Monday.Sitting at the same table as the Obamas at the private dinner hosted by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his wife Gursharan Kaur, Sonia tweaked her personal style just a bit to show her appreciation.Sonia may not have been as eclectic and experimental as Michelle, who was dressed in a dazzling black and gold ensemble by Indo-American designer Naeem Khan, but she still managed to create some ripples with her choice of a sari.While no one expected her to wear a gown or something extremely festive, she departed a little bit from her trademark style to show she made an extra effort for the party.Dressed in a midnight blue traditional weave silk sari with a mahogany gold border, one saw her in a colour she has probably never worn before. Even her choice of gold drop earrings is something she isn’t generally associated with. Considering she gave her usual neutrals, pastels, khadi and pearls a miss, which was a noticeable departure from her style.While Michelle is iconic in that she mixes high street labels with high end ones and keeps it constantly innovative, Sonia’s appeal comes from keeping it consistently chic and personal.Her trademark traditional weave saris, kitten heels and neatly done hair have got her a style icon’s tag many a time. She does, however, tweak her granny chic look now and then, when the occasion demands it.advertisementShe is known for her love of Paithani saris and white cotton churidar-kameezes. So the sari, which looked like a kanjeevaram, was quite ‘dressy’ for her. She usually goes for temple designs, ikatweaves and gold threadwork only on rare occasions.last_img read more
