I see more and more people using the iPhone’s FaceTime functionality every day.
It was uncomfortable letting someone peek into your world in real-time at first. But as the likes of visual communication predominate the mobile web, FaceTime has become a preferred vehicle for conversation.
People prefer to talk to faces. They not only want to see human emotion but they also want to know where you are. Context brings the phone call to life, a true 1v1 experience.
Face-to-face chat is making a comeback through digital phones, enabling people to travel through time, to be there without being there.
