In some circles, the Skype platform is considered the gold standard for video chatting. It’s inexpensive (free to go cam-to-cam with a fellow Skype user), it works well across all types of devices, and it has lots of great features. More than 300 million people use Skype, which is another benefit.
The camera makes a big difference in webcamming. You can’t do business without it, and the built-in cam on your laptop isn’t gonna cut it if you’re trying to give fans a great show or stay comfortable in those pretty, yoga-like poses. At the very least, you should have a good quality camera.
