While Skype charges for services such as Skype-to-phone calling, Skype in the Workspace, like most social networks, is free to join and use. There's not much downside to giving it a try, especially if you're already using Skype and social sites like LinkedIn and Twitter at work. There's plenty of upside in Skype's huge user community, particularly the millions-strong segment that uses Skype for business. In fact, you don't even need a Skype account to try it -- you can sign in with your LinkedIn credentials.

Unfortunate choice of article format. As you are more than well aware, I can't use it. Please address client-friendliness in future endeavors. Thank You.
