Why businesses should start using Facebook video chat

Facebook video chat isn't revolutionary, but there are some good reasons that businesses should be excited about it

By Tony Bradley, PC World |  Unified Communications, Facebook, Skype

Facebook video chat is limited to one-on-one calls, unlike Google+ Huddles which allow for group video chat, or even group simultaneous watching of YouTube videos. There are certainly some practical business applications for the group aspects of Google+. Hopefully, Facebook will continue to expand on the video chat concept and include a group video chat function at some point. What would really be cool is if Facebook, Google+, Skype, Apple FaceTime, and any other competing video chat platform could all get on the same page so they could all work together, but I won't hold my breath.

The initial implementation of Facebook video chat may be a little rough around the edges, but it is still good news, and it is a valuable tool that businesses can start taking advantage of immediately with the other 750 million Facebook users.
