    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    Just downloaded this item, to make it easier to talk/see son in college. No experience with it at all - so we'll see how it works.

    Hi Demons,
    how is the skype going?
    People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily...........Zig Ziglar

    Haven't used that much, I should have a higher CPU speed. It would be better, but really nice to see the body language of the person you're talking with. Eliminates minor misunderstandings.

    Made good use of Skype last night, was a good experience. Video lighting isn't the best but hey what do you want for free. Very easy to pick up mood, body language and other important information when talking to someone. Can see a useful future for this type of product. Thought so in the past, just hadn't used. I can certainly see being used in the phsyco babble field as an extention to office visits. Good tool when talking to some one you care about. Sure wouldn't want to talk to the IRS or a telemarketer on face to face. lol. Wouldn't take into restroom either, lol. That could make a viral video.
