Vonage announced last week the Vonage Mobile Application for Facebook, making it possible for users to call Facebook friends who have the same app directly from their friends list with a single touch. The new one-touch calling app is free and available for Facebook users worldwide.
“The Vonage Mobile app for Facebook is a tangible example of our commitment to deliver extraordinary value and a better communications experience for individuals and their social networks, across broadband-enabled devices, around the world” said Marc Lefar, Chief Executive Officer of Vonage Holdings Corp. in a press release. “This is just the start. In the future we will expand on this service to include a wide range of integrated voice and messaging services that change the way people communicate.”
After downloading the application, the user will need to enter their Facebook ID and password. The app will automatically load Facebook contacts and the Vonage logo will appear next to the friends who have downloaded the same app. Users can call any friend without having to be online.
