Here's something your mom told me about – Google Hangouts. I know, this is old news, but I figure that if she hasn't told you about it, maybe nobody has.

Here's what you do:

  1. Get someone to invite you to Google+ (which is just like facebook, but nobody you know is on there, so it's a ton less self-centered)
  2. Create a circle (there is no "naked clown pics" circle by default, so if you want one, you have to make it)
  3. Start a Hangout (it's dirtier than it sounds, but not dirty enough)

That's it, you're done. Now you can video chat with tons of people for absolutely no reason at all. Why? Why not?

It works pretty well. When someone talks their image jumps to the large screen. The audio sounds good. I hear that facebook/Skype is trying to play catchup as quickly as possible. You'd better use it now, while people still care.
