Get a Magic Travel Machine: Why I Love Using Skype.

Feb 02, 2010

I just got off a Skype call with my friend Jonathan, who recently relocated to Phuket, Thailand. It’s already Tuesday there. Earlier this morning I was talking with my mother who lives in Bratislava, Slovakia. Yes — I said Slovakia.

Now I’ve been using Skype for a couple of years, and yet every time I use it I can’t help but think that it must use some sort of magic. Connecting with people around the globe for free — having conversations with friends, family and business partners. It is amazing.

With Skype we are able to stay connected globally using voice and video chats for free. Video chat is almost as good as being in person. You can see body language and really get a sense of having a real conversation with the person on the other end of the line. You also use video and chat simultaneously which makes for easy sharing of links, files, and that I can share my screen with someone thousands of miles away. It is great for collaborating on projects.

If you’re not a Skype user yet — I highly encourage you to try it out or look me up and give me a call if you want to chat about technology, social media or business!

I use it for business meetings, especially for national conference calls. Love it. Great post!
