Conference calls are not just for work, you know. A basic telephone is, above all, a communication device. And there is no more important function of communication than that of keeping up with friends and loved ones.
Why not schedule a teleconference with friends in far-flung parts of the country, or may even the world. Before you laugh or say it sounds ridiculous, think about it…you schedule business meetings and rehearsals and because you schedule them you make every effort to keep these appointments. So why not schedule time to talk and catch up with friends. Sure, you all have cell phones and perhaps after 9pm you can talk for free, but will you?
It is hard to get a conversation going with multiple people on cell phones. Or if several of you try to talk using the speakerphone mode, it may not sound quite right. A provider of audio conference tools has the set-up to make your conference call with friends sound crisp and clear.
Yes, it is saying something about the times in which we live when people consider setting up conference calls with friends. But the reality is that many of us are so busy that we just sit back, watch our friendships erode, and lament it all.
If you have been e-mailing friends who are far away, it is time to step away from the computer. LOL cannot replace the sound of genuine laughter. Get a group of friends together and find a time to really talk. You'll feel a whole lot better. And you just may decide to conduct a little business after all: you can use conference calls to plan your next group vacation.
