The story is as relevant to an always-improving age of social media as Facebook updates are: SocialEyes, a new video chatting service, has created a video conference room that exclusively uses Facebook connect to gather Facebook friends into live or standby chat rooms. Users can generate public or private online video discussions, whose members can chat in real-time or leave messages based on the subject. SocialEyes has attempted to create an online office space, where users would essentially check in to see who’s viewable and available.
Personally, I think once Facebook catches up with the likes of Skype, Google Buzz and TokBox, its users would prefer a video chatting service that’s built directly onto its users’ webpages. New York Times’ technology section did excellent work in discerning the story as newsworthy, for people are constantly looking for new ways to communicate.
