It’s Face Time!

As we all know, nonverbal language such as eye contact and facial expressions has great influence on communication. We need to see each other’s faces and hear each other’s voice.

Check the list below then.

Instant Messaging Apps

The first app on this list must be Apple’s very new and fresh video calling solution: Face Time. FaceTime works by connecting an iPhone 4, 4th Generation iPod touch or computer with Mac OS X to another similar device. People have been dreaming about video calling for decades. iPhone 4 makes it a reality.
