First Facebook VoIP App

A VoIP provider JAJAH is claiming to have created the first VoIP app which can be imbedded into Facebook.

JAJAH Social Call will be available to the estimated 500 million users of the world's largest social networking service.

Initially created as a mobile app for the Blackberry, JAJAH Social Call is only in beta at the moment but allows calls to Facebook friends around the world at low rates.

A spokesman of the Telefonica Europe VoIP company said:  “JAJAH Social Call is the first global telephony service to work within Facebook.”

"All you have to do is click and call as there are no further downloads and no charges required. We have seen numerous announcements from many companies, but JAJAH is the first to bring a genuine calling service to Facebook.”

JAJAH is making a significant move in the world of social networking having already created a deal with Twitter.

However the VoIP giant Skype has already integrated a VoIP calling service on Facebook which is PC-based - Skype 5.0. As long as Facebook friends or contacts are also listed on Skype then you can call them for free.

Telefonica Europe runs O2 in various European countries including the UK. It bought JAJAH for 207 million US dollars at the beginning of 2010 when it was just a start up. Now German customers can use O2 Global Friends to make international VoIP calls by dialling a local number.
