How to Chat Employing a Webcam on Facebook
The addition of video chat to Facebook has come a long way in solving both the hardware configuration and software divergence hurdles. Here is the easiest way to employ a webcam chat on Facebook:
1. Go to your Friend’s timeline and find the Call button near the top of the screen. Click Call
2. If the webcam has not been set up already, select the Set Up instructions from the pop up dialog
3. Once the set up is complete, complete your call to your Friend. If your Friend does not connect immediately, you can leave a video message if you choose.
If you have a webcam and microphone, but are still having problems after following these instructions, it is important to make sure you have your webcam and microphone plugged in correctly to your computer and also that they are in good working order. One of the cool features of Facebook’s video chat is that you can still take advantage of video chat without the use of a webcam. If you only have a microphone and no webcam, you will still be able to see your Friend’s video, but they will only be able to hear your voice.
