Coordinating with Peers and Allies

If you are trying to plan and coordinate with organisations that are connected to the internet, you can use a 'Voice over Internet Protocol' service like Skype, which allows you to have simultaneous conversations with several people in different geographical areas. You can also communicate with people using text, via instant messaging services built into these applications.


  • Computer to computer voice calls including video calls (if you have a webcam) can be made securely using a microphone and computer. If you buy skype credit, you can call land or mobile phone lines at a low-cost rate depending on your location. Others can also call you from a land or mobile phone line if you use SkypeIn, provided you are online. You can also send SMS texts to mobiles at a low cost and make conference calls with multiple skype users and landlines along with conference text based chats.

  • Allows you to sign in to an Instant Messaging account (AIM, Yahoo!, MSN, Google Talk and Gmail, ICQ and Jabber) via a web-browser. You can also do voice and video chats.
