“One of the biggest benefits Skype has over any other social networking channel (and yes it is a social networking channel) is its availability to deliver real-time, high quality audio and visual communication.
Personally I love having meetings on Skype. I don’t have to go anywhere and I don’t have to get dressed. That’s until the person you’re meeting with asks you to go in video chat and then one’s pink pyjamas and lack of makeup gets a bit embarrassing.
Convenience aside, Skype really enables you to connect no matter where you are in the world. Sure it’s been around for years, and this isn’t anything new, but Skype seems to be playing a more predominant role in the business world.”
