Celebrating Video Calling on Skype's 8th Birthday

If a photo is worth 1,000 words, a video call is worth 1,000,000 words.

Facial expressions and real-time reactions are the little nuances that make a conversation that much more meaningful. Every day on Skype, the great things people want to say and share are expressed through face-to-face video conversations.

Today on Skype’s 8th birthday, we want to celebrate the 100s of millions of people who are doing great things – sharing stories, information, special moments – across the world in so many places. It’s the real life moments that matter – the fun, silly, adorable, caring, engaging – all the stuff we know you love to do over Skype, especially whenever you’re apart from the people who you care about the most.

What started off as a little idea to connect the world over video calls has turned into something so much more, and we believe this is making a huge difference in making the world feel smaller and a lot more connected.

If you wish to share your favorite Skype moment for our 8th Birthday, tweet using hashtag #ILOVESKYPE. Follow us on Twitter @Skype or at
