Skype Mombassadors: Sharing Ways Skype Keeps Families Connected

Whether you use Skype in your personal or professional life, our video and voice calling, instant messaging and screen sharing are helping to transform the way you communicate. Since Skype’s inception, we’ve seen hundreds of stories surrounding the innovative ways students, adults, grandparents and more are using Skype every day to stay in touch with their loved ones.

Given these unique Skype user stories, we honed in on mothers – the chief family connectors – across the globe to see how they are using Skype to simplify and enrich their family lives. Earlier this year, we teamed up with Mom Central Consulting and identified 43 moms who are also bloggers to act as Skype Mombassadors.

As Mombassadors, they have been trying out Skype’s various features and Skype-enabled gadgets and sharing their stories on their blogs. These mommy bloggers from across the United States have incorporated Skype in their day-to-day life – they tested out Say it with Skype’s ‘Mom You Rock’ application over Mother’s Day, tested out Group Video Calling during June, and are soon going to take Skype on the road for their summer travels. Whether they have used Skype mobile video calling on the family vacation to share the experience with others, connected the kids with dad via video call while he is away for work, or simply used it on their landline phone to cut down on family calling costs, our Mombassadors have been taking Skype with them wherever they go.

Here are three of the many Mombassadors trying out Skype this summer:


  • Jill, the woman behind The Diaper Diaries is a busy mom of three children who uses Skype to keep in touch with her blogger friends across the country through instant Messaging, video calling and even to share photos by sending files!


  • Another blogger, Tanya of Mommy Goggles, uses Skype to speak with her family and friends back in her Texas hometown from her home in Iowa.


  • And last but not least, multitasking Better in Bulk mommy blogger Lolli uses Skype not only for staying in touch with her family of six and socializing with friends, but also for work.

Are you a mom who uses Skype to keep the family connected? Leave a comment and share your experience with us.
