“CallFriends” Android Application Brings A “Party Line” Service To Your Facebook Friends
Have you ever wanted to chat with your friends on Facebook like a party line? On the phone with a group of your friends, and the ability to mute the call, keep callers on the line, invite callers straight from your wall, or call them back if they get disconnected?
For podcasters, conference calls, or group meetings with friends this application is a DREAM COME TRUE! Never mind expensive fees, this application does it all not through a phone number, but through social id’s that are assigned to each contact.
The app is described as:
“Mobile to Mobile Group Calling from Facebook. Safe & Secure.
No phone #s.
Call Friends – mobile-to-mobile group calling with a click from Facebook. Talk to up to 6 Facebook friends on a single mobile call without phone numbers. Tap friends profile pix to start the conversation – everyone’s mobile rings. Super easy to invite friends to join you in the Call Friends app.
Personal Calling Dashboard: New call control features. Your calling dashboard shows you who’s on the call and allows you to mute, delete and re-call anyone on the call.
Wall Calls – Choose the SHARE option & the calls you make to friends will post as live links on your Facebook News Feed. More friends can click to join the call.
Now that’s social!
No more phone numbers. Call Friends translates phones #s into social IDs. No need to know or store phone numbers. Call Friends becomes your complete social phone book!
Safe and secure: Your phone # is never shared with 3rd parties, including Facebook. You can show or hide your caller ID as you wish. Works with your existing carrier plan: No extra fees or charges. Call Friends is free to download. Your calls use your existing carrier plan minutes. Mobile USA Only!”
We used the application on our system to have a conference call between myself, and a couple of members of my staff using Facebook, and we enjoyed the quality of the call, and I had fun muting those that comically “got out of line” during the call so we could get back to business.
What was neat is, we decided that we wanted feedback, and so I was able to share the conference link on my wall. This engaged more people to join in, just for fun – it was a great time! During the call, we all made plans to meet up at a local pizza joint and had a blast! The good news, all of my staff had a great time, and we met some new friends from my Facebook along the way! Not only is that SOCIAL, but that this takes FACEBOOK to the next level! WHOO-HOO!
Earlier I mentioned this would be good for podcasters! Using this application with a recording app to record calls means you could ultimately conference in up to six people, and record the call, which could then be used to upload as a podcast – or import for post production! The ideas for this application are endless, and since a lot of people use social networking for business purposes a free conference call application is THE MOST BRILLIANT IDEA to hit a mobile phone!
Please CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD the free application, and try it for yourself! This is the NEXT BIG THING for social networking enthusiasts who want the ability to communicate live with their friends, without the hassle of additional charges!
