Several tech gurus have made the prediction that based on Facebook’s deal with Skype, Facebook is set to launch Video Chat similar to Skype‘s service later today.Actually,Facebook has scheduled a Wednesday news conference to announce the launch of what it termed “something awesome.” The guess of the tech websites is that the company will introduce a video-chat feature based by Skype to rival Google+.
It’s not difficult to figure out why Zuckerberg is making this announcement almost after the week after launch of Google+.Since it was launched last week, Google has been getting all the online buzz in the social-media world for its new networking platform, Google+.
But Google far from even close to rival the Social Networking Giant we call Facebook. But after Buzz, Wave and other failed efforts, Google+ looks like the search engine’s most serious leap yet into the social-networking world.
A live stream of the one-hour-long launch can be watched here and will begin at 6 pm GMT from Facebook’s HQ.
So far more than 70,000 Facebook users have signed up to view the feed.
However, the other suggestions doing the rounds are that Facebook’s long-awaited app for Apple’s iPad could be finally ready to launch or that the social network will unveil a dedicated photo-sharing app for smartphones.
