Default Skype, is it still popular??

Well a friend of me asked to download Skype.. so I thought fair enough. Went ahead and downloaded it. Then realised other than that one person, I don't know anyone else that uses Skype. Despite it being so popular.

Is it still popular? Or am I a tad too late on moving on up the technology ladder hehe

Thanks in advance

Shaun

It is still popular for conference calling and stuff like that, but can be flakey at times.

I used it *all the time* when I had a long distance relationship. Now I barely use it at all.. lol.. But it is nice when you have to make a phone call to the other side of Earth.. Though I wonder if they talked about adding fees to use it soon?

To call an actual landline or cell phone it will incur fees but for the moment is is still free skype to skype. Gmail actually now has the ability to call actual phones for free now.
