HOW TO FIND AND CONNECT TO PEOPLE ON SKYPE

Skype

Being easy to use, free and user-friendly technology, Skype allows you to stay in touch with your dear ones all over the world. Skype is best known for allowing users to make free calls over an Internet connection.

But in order to call someone you have to find them first.

Finding and connecting people on Skype is very easy.

Just follow these steps and you won’t have any problems.

1. Sign in to your Skype account by typing you Skype name and password (Provided you already have installed Skype on your computer and created an account: Instructions on http://www.softwareask.com/how-to-install-skype/#more-2385)

2. If you already have the person you want to connect to in your Contact you’ll only have to select their name from the list of Contacts.

Now if you return to your standard Skype site you will see that the requested contact is now added to your address book.

As long as the contact is not confirmed by the person to whom you have sent the contact request only two question marks appear in front of the name. One in the profile symbol, another is the status symbol.

Once the contact accepts you request you will be able to see his/her status.

Of course you may also get contact requests. They appear on top of your Skype address book column with an orange circle. It is your decision whether you’ll accept or ignore the contact request, or even block it.
