Hi Jason – Yes, I used it a few days ago when it went live. It is not facebook’s answer, it is Sean Parker and Shawn Fanning‘s version of the evolution of video chat, made available to facebook users. I’ve used facebook’s video chat service, and Airtime certainly does have more features.
I like the fact that it is web based and the split screen is interesting, but that’s about it for now. I feel the ability to randomly chat with other Internet users, based on mutual Facebook friends, is something some may find useful, but not this introvert.
I do not like the fact that Airtime can photograph the user. Monitoring and censoring chats, in the name of safety, doesn’t sit well with me. And random incoming chats, I found to be annoying. I don’t believe I’ll be using it for business anytime soon. Here’s a link to a recent article.
