Instant messaging ? How and Where ?

  samson1589 01:00 26 Apr 2009


My mate is off to norway with work and needs to chat to his wife and kids on a daily basis and its too expensive to phone home. He is taking my laptop and has wi fi in the hotel and his wife has their laptop at home. Is there a free site where they can chat privately (not that anything on the internet is really private)and is easy to use as niether of them is particularly computer literate.
Something that i can set up for them in about an hour tommorrow morning before he goes !

Hope someone can help ?

Take a look at meebo, no set up time apart from organising an IM account each if they don't have one already. click here

The very best for what you want is without doubt click here

I, and all my friends and relatives, in various parts of the World use it regularly.

It is totally Free, all you each need is a mic and webcam, or webcam with built-in mic - I use, and recommend the Logitech Quickcam Pro 9000.
