    I think you are right. Imagine having to travel half the world to go for a conference. The internet is the best thing to ever happen in the world. I would imagine having no email or social media. My parents say we are a generation too spoiled for our own good because we have the internet. There is something called information overload. This is from having so much information it makes a person a zombie.
    Anyway everybody tries to be an optimist about technology.

    I think this feature is already available in Google plus. They call it a hang out, some people even use this technology for education. There are now teachers that offers to teach students online with the use of Skype, Google Plus and Facebook messenger.

    In school most of the schools we have VC(vedioconferencing) events where different school participate and throw a discussion on any chosen topic.

    In my school in most of the VC's i attended i led my VC team it used to be fun sometimes there were school from diff. states and sometimes from diff.. countries.. once in a VC i failed to answer a question it was such an embarrising moment but those are VC's are quite usefull for students as the come face to face with children from various schools..

    Skype is used mostly for such purposes.

    Yes, most of the schools use this technology for their advantage. If there is a platform where different school students can discuss over a common subject, a lot of new ideas would come up. There will be best practice replication where best methods will be replicated. VC is really a blessing.

    As @Panchabhut has alredy mentioned nowadays most of the corporate organizations use VC for their daily meeting with various regional offices. Nowadays most of the interviews happen on VC. But in the case of interviews I doubt its efficacy. It will not be as effective as face to face interview.

    Internet is a blessing when it comes to activities such as meetings, communicating with clients, etc. That's why Skype is such a great thing to exist. I also discovered a great app for video conferencing. It is the Zoom app. Some of you might try it.

    I think that most businesses will use some sort of video messenger service these days, and while technology, the internet in particular, as its flaws, you can't help but praise it for the way its managed to make things like this a lot easier for many people.

    Video conferencing is a real blessing in many ways. Most importantly it saves time and money. In corporates a considerable amount of time is being spent on travelling and with VC in place they can easily get in touch with other offices. Employees could use this time for other productive works. They could also save huge money in terms of travel expenses, especially in foreign tours.

    But I don't think a VC could ever replace a physical face to face conversation and it has some limitations. Usually for final round of interviews corporates insist on face to face meeting than VC. Body language is still a great factor deciding effectiveness in an interview.

    Thanks for clarifying with your second paragraph. It made me realized the bigger advantage of face to face meetings. I also realized that it is easier to grasp and feel what clients wants to insist or expressed. In VC, there's no eye contact, unlike in face to face meetings.

    There are high end video conferencing equipment like Polycom that can cover a whole room in the screen. You can get the body language also. Saves a lot on travel and hotel costs for organisations.

    Some video conferencing technology can be expensive, but compare that to the cost of employees booking travel and having to arrange hotels, not only that but the time they're out of the office, then it quickly becomes the better option.

    I once worked as virtual assistant of my father's friend along with my friend. We did his work and we do video conferencing which saved him a lot of money.

    The use of videoconferencing translates into cost savings, productivity savings and strategic gains, and in the case of a digital library distributed profits would be similar, since researchers and users would be in constant communication saving the costs of having to travel, talk on the phone or maintain a collaborative research. For educational institutions, government and enterprises, videoconferencing saves costs because it prevents travel, per diem expenses, loss of time, plus:

    Faster exchange of ideas and frequent
    Increased productivity and competitive advantage
    Provide an additional option for customers to get a better return on their ISDN lines.
    Provide an additional alternative to the better use of computing resources.

    Competitiveness

    Because human resources of an entity as a library spend less time traveling avoiding strenuous travel, will optimize the time in more productive meetings, may review research processes remotely, but above all the most important thing is that users will be connected to One way or another to conduct research, review, collaborate, share information, see live changes of entities or objects of interest while maintaining a close working relationship.

    Wow, this is lengthy yet an informative comment. Don't matter about the advantage of in-person meetings, videoconferencing is more on as an advantage for every businesses around the globe.
