Social Hangouts: Facebook Video Chat For Up To 20

An alternative to the Google Hangouts feature on Google Plus was introduced in the form of Social Hangouts on Facebook, which enables video chatting with up to 20 friends without leaving the social network’s platform.

While Facebook and Skype teamed up to debut a video chat feature of their own, the developers of Social Hangouts say group videoconferencing isn’t part of the deal.
