Social Videoconferencing via Facebook: Airtime Is Here

Robin Good: Airtime is a new social videoconferencing app that allows you to have one-to-one video conversations with people you have probably never met before, but who share your same location and interests.


From TheNextWeb review: "Essentially, it’s like Chat Roulette, but not nearly as creepy, and with little to zero nudity.

From Telepresenceoptions.com: "Airtime is the combination of two existing technologies; web-based videoconferencing and interest-based user pairing."


"Airtime is tied to your Facebook account (Parker is the former President of Facebook, which should help to ensure successful integration).


The Facebook connection serves a few purposes. It allows Airtime users to easily initiate video chat with their Facebook friends, and it also allows Airtime to peek into your publicly listed "interests" (likes, subscriptions, etc.) and use that information to connect you with other, random, Airtime users."

P2P Social File Sharing: Send Large Files To Any Fiend on Facebook with Pipe

From the official site: "As surprising as it sounds, there's currently no easy and effective way to transfer a file to a friend via Facebook. Pipe has taken a common feature of communication - attaching a file - and turned it into something simple and fun to use.


Privacy is guaranteed as it's a direct connection from one device to the other, between friends.


Pipe creates a direct, real-time connection between two devices with no intermediary server.


Pipe starts as an application on Facebook, and is then migrating to mobile devices and tablets.

  • Support for any file format, up to 1GB
  • Only the sender needs to be on Pipe
  • Invite a friend to Pipe with a simple file transfer
  • Direct connection with no intermediary server
