Last week my skype account was hacked which meant I couldn’t log in. After no response from skype support (and a hilarious email from them wanting feedback on their customer support!) I gave in and created a new account. Now the sidebar with the green ticks is back and I’m gradually reconnecting with my contacts.
It was interesting just how disconnected I felt without skype – how that list of names reminds me of people near and far who I connect with often or just occasionally. More than twitter, more than email.
