If you find yourself mostly working in Skype, with a couple of ongoing Facebook conversations preventing you from tuning out of the social network, you may like the Sameroom Skype-Facebook integration.
Of course, it works the other way around, too. If you live in Facebook but need to keep an eye on Skype, Sameroom can help you get away from Skype for a bit. This can be particularly enticing for those in need of communication on-the-go, since Facebook’s Messenger app is, for the time being, vastly superior to Skype’s mobile solutions (at least, on iOS and Android—we hear it’s a marvel of engineering on Windows Phone).
To get started, follow these steps:
- Step 1: Connect your Facebook and Skype accounts to Sameroom;
- Step 2: Open a Tube between a group or contact in Skype for Side A and a group or contact on Messenger for Side B*
* This operation is commutative: A<=>B === B<=>A.
Once you set this up, you can adjust posting options to fine-tune how your messages appear on either end of the Tube.
Note that if you need to involve another team into your Skype-Facebook discussion, and the other team prefers Slack, HipChat, or some other platform supported by Sameroom, you can open another Tube between your Skype (or Messenger) group and the other platform, either directly, or via a Portal URL. To learn about using Portals, see our Videos section.
