    Has anyone else noticed that lately theres been this "mysterious" button on facebook........ "CALL" :wacko:

    If your talking to someone on chat, and you go onto their profile ..near the top corner of the profile there is a new button that says CALL!
    Me and my friend tried it the other day but nothing happend. :shrug:
    Has anyone else noticed it, or got it to work ..or even know what its for??

    I think it's just for those who have added their mobile number to their facebook profile so you click call and it just does as normal phone call using the number they've entered? I think thats what it is anyway.

    I've read before that its an anti-bullying device. So if youre talking to someone and they are bullying you you can report it.

    Its because cyber bullying has got HUGE and kids are killing themselves, and the police are always being called "because XX on facebook said XX"

    Its just a big red button, apparently a few websites have it now, but it will be rolled out on chat platforms.

    I think :)
