New Version (Beta) of Skype Released, Offers User-Built Business Directory
New Version of Skype Released, Offers "Social" Business Directory
The new version (3.1) was released a couple of days ago. Download here (Windows Only).
SkypeFind is one of the most interesting features that we’ve done in quite a while now. We call it “Local businesses you like”, and that’s what it is - a collection of businesses, with reviews and comments, built by everyone using Skype.
With SkypeFind a User Can:
++ Add and edit listings
++ Add reviews and comments to listings
If your opinion changes, you can always come back to this listing and edit your comment later. This might be useful if you were initially impressed by a business and so added a comment but service went down hill on additional visits.
++ Ask For Help and Suggestions
Throughout the SkypeFind interface, you see the “Ask your friends” link. You can post a question to your friends there, such as “What’s a good hotel in London?” Your mood message is then automatically set to this question, but with a twist: there’s a link to a public chat that’s automatically created.
++ Direct Links to Dial The Number Using SkypeOut
++ Typing indicators (Now when another person is typing)
