New Vonage App Means Free Calls For Facebook Friends

If your Facebook friends have smart phones, a new app launched by Vonage today means you can call them for free. The Vonage Mobile application for Facebook lets you call your Facebook friends for free anywhere in the world, as long as they also have the app.

Unlike with services such as Skype, the integration with Facebook means there’s no need to dial or remember a separate screen name – users can just click on a friend within Facebook and start talking. When placing a call, the friend’s profile picture and status update display on the screen. The phone rings for an incoming call, even if the app is closed.
