It's hard to image that Skype was born just eight short years ago. While they weren't the first, and they have more competition today than ever (FaceTime, Google Huddle), Skype did a lot to take video calling from the stuff of science fiction to an everyday reality.
To celebrate, they are encourage their users around the world to share their Skype stories.
“We want to celebrate the 100s of millions of people who are doing great things – sharing stories, information, special moments – across the world in so many places. It’s the real life moments that matter – the fun, silly, adorable, caring, engaging – all the stuff we know you love to do over Skype, especially whenever you’re apart from the people who you care about the most.”
You can tweet your story with the hashtag #iloveskype. And in case you weren't convinced, Skype released this video called “The Power of Skype.”
