Defending Facebook's excitement over its new (obsolete) video-chat service

ITworld blogger gives FB video insufficient kudos

By  

Peter Smith, sorry to dis a colleague, but yes, being disappointed and surprised that the surprise announcement Facebook pre-hyped last week turned out to be circa-2005 video chat, yes, you are hopelessly out of touch.

True, video chat has been old since people started feeling icky about having to IM with people they don't really like anyway, while exposing how they look when not prepared to be viewed by the public and squinting at a dark, fuzzy screen where the colleague seems to be moving around in ways not commensurate with a public video meeting.
