Fring (free) recently released a new version that offers the first ever group video chatting on the iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Android, and other devices. You can have up to four people chatting at the same time -- as long as they all have Fring. Video chat can be done over both 3G and WiFi. You can also use Fring to call regular phones by making in-app purchases of call time, with packages starting at $9.99.

I'm in the middle of writing a couple of books about social media, and I'm up on Facebook almost all the time. It's an incredibly feature-rich environment—so much so, that it's almost impossible to describe it all in a book, let alone a 700 word article. In this edition of Social Media Report, I'm going to focus on one specific feature of Facebook—Places. If you want a thorough understanding of Places, take a look at Facebook's description (facebook.com/places) or check out my new book (see my author's bio).
