my wife is in switzerland for a week.  yesterday facebook announced video calling in partnership with skype.  i was in the microsoft store yesterday afternoon with my kids where we were able to set it up and test it.

Facebook with Video Calling

notice on my slate with a front and rear facing camera how easy it is to toggle between the two of them.  it took a trip halfway around the world to introduce our family to the world of video chatting and instant messaging, but now that they have seen what it can do, i have a feeling there will be a lot of it in our future.
