My husband and I are super close. In fact, we are so close that we seldom go on trips without the other one. However, since going on a few press trips over the last few months, I have found myself lonely and missing my guy, but thanks to Skype, we can still connect — even if I am in California, while he is still here in Kentucky.

Yes — Skype is a relationship lifesaver.

Watch the touching story of a mom and dad at opposite ends of the earth who used Skype IM and video calling to stay together through one of life’s most important moments.

    Skype is great! When my cousin and her husband were stationed in Japan, my family and I got to stay in touch with her via Skype. Also, my kids use Skype to have remote “playdates” with their friends!

    Skype is a great program and we use it regularly to keep in touch with family that lives out in the country and with relatives living in Europe. Not to mention that the kids love being able to “see” grandma whenever they want using the camera.
