Skype software allows you to make local and International calls via the Internet, Skype user to Skype user, for free. Skype also allows you to transfer files and set up conference calls between three or more people. When using the Skype Me application on Facebook, a call button that you create, which appears under your profile, alerts your friends when you are logged on to Skype. Your Skype friends will then be able to call, chat, video chat and even instant message you.
