There are public chatrooms in which you can chat with other members and you can browse member profiles to make new friends.
That’s probably the best thing about Skype – the fact that so many people already have it.
Two of my favourite video conferencing apps are Camfrog and oo Voo and both offer you the ability to set up face-to-face chats without any hassle.
Camfrog is great because it offers pixel-perfect visuals, and clear, crisp sounds so you almost feel like you’re in the same room as the other person.
You get to see the people you’re talking with; it's the next best thing after actually being face to face with them.
For support groups, the means being able to face their problems, dilemmas and sufferings with other real people that are going through the exact same thing or have lived through such harsh times in the past.
