When bored with nothing to do, we all fall victim to browsing around on Facebook for hours without actually talking to anyone we know. Just catching up on statuses while on the bus is nice, but when you see that someone you havenít talked to in forever is online, you donít want to pop up in their chat only to be ignored. Thatís why thereís now a more direct approach through a new Facebook app that lets you call your friends that are online.
Though this has a bit of a Skype feel, itís probably going to reach out to a lot more of your friends because not everyone has a Skype account. This Facebook Messenger app is just $2.99 and when in use, will send your friend a link on Facebook to follow through with the call. This is really helpful considering you donít have to wait around forever if they responded to your chat. If theyíre at their computer and want to talk, theyíll answer. If theyíre busy, they wonít. Simple as that.
