The Invention of Skype

2003

The social media that changed the world.

Skype

In August 2003 a new social media called Skype came out. Skype is a social media that is free and lets you call and text all over the world freely. Inventors Janus Friis and Niklas Zennstrom say that Skype is an "IP Telephony service provider that offers free calling between subscribers and low cost calling to people who don't use the service."This product was invented so that people far away can keep in contact without needing to waist money using telephones. This social media was just recently updated. They just recently added a messaging part so that you don't always have to call. There is only one version of Skype right now but maybe later in the years there will be more.
