You can be on Facebook without making or accepting any friend offers. You need only use it to 'friend' the person you want to talk to via video, otherwise you would leave it alone (and without completing your profile information except the bare minimum, no-one could ever find you).

You have to go to a different Google search to find out where to download Skype for Mac.

DuckDuckGo take you straight there as it has no underlying commercial reason to do otherwise. I'll qualify that - it did when I was finding the link for my daughter with a new Mac. I use DDG as my search engine of choice and is the default in Safari, even though I don't use the address bar to search. Google is better for image search so it still gets CPU time, unfortunately.

That's the one. I could ignore the nagging in v7 by not seeing it.

I had a notification that was a request to rate Skype, rather than an update. I was generous and gave them two stars. They also wanted two things that could be improved: 'all' and 'everything' don't count :lol:

It's really horrible. They've just dismantled the old one and rebuilt another one in the spirit of Microsoft. And the touchtone dialling thing doesn't work, it doesn't send the right tones down the line anymore, if you want to use it to call a phone with touchtone recognition at the other end. It doesn't work. And actually there's a lot of other things wrong with it. Why they felt it necessary to demolish the old and put in the Microsoft I don't know. But that is their mission. To mess things up.

I see that Skype has a security hole that isn't restricted to Windows. It covers mac OS and Linux too.
