Skype 5.0 and VoIP... the start to service consolidation?


Skype 5.0 will integrate with Facebook to become an even more powerful, consolidated messaging platform. In addition to the normal messaging, this will bring a VoIP interface when simultaneously logged into Facebook.

Are we heading towards a service consolidation concept in which a person can maintain and entire social network and contact them via text, email, or voice all via an Internet connection? It seems like it's getting closer and closer everyday.

What are your thoughts on this?

It is getting closer. The internet will be used to more things in the future.

Collegiate Preps said...

nice i love skype, but i hope it doesnt make facebook slow to use

Paul said...

I've used skype a few times and was fairly awesome. Used mostly for chat rooms and at the time there wasn't a push to talk which was kinda annoying. Should be interesting on facebook i think.

MRanthrope said...

skypebook will own the future...scary

SY said...

ya we are getting closer and I think its great but it's also stopping people from actually getting out the house to communicate.

with anything good you will get some bad.

I think it's funny when my kids say "why don't they just use their cell phone?" when watching an old movie. It's all they've ever known. That's what's happening w/ the internet.
