Hi Marcy.....If you're asking for an answer from a personal point of view as opposed to a World View.......This Gram Dawg would vote for Skype! I have a son and his family in Georgia and another in California.........I get to see my grand daughters as we chat.......For a Baby boomer, this is mind-blowing.
I was just thinking the other day about what in the He** we ever did before the cell phone!! I can remember driving around looking for a "phone booth" to contact someone I needed to speak to IMMEDIATELY LMAO!! And I don't know about anyone else, but every public phone I ever tried to use was either Out-of-Order or ate up my coins!!!
