Skype users actually use the service. I signed in while writing this and found some 44 million people online; that's a representative fraction of the 280 million people, give or take, who use Skype each month. While Skype can't point to a specific number of people who use the platform for business, it estimates that it's easily in the millions. Skype in the Workspace helps you find those folks in one place and interact with them as an audience -- something that wasn't particularly easy to do before. "What this enables you to do is tap into that Skype network and make that instant connection," said Ural Cebeci, Skype's head of SMB marketing, in an interview.
