Skype Helps Keep Long-Distance Love Alive

Posted by: Maxine Brimmer (3 years, 7 months ago)

As the song goes- love will keep us together. Well, love and Skype, if the results of a new survey are anything to go by. It turns out that Microsoft’s video-calling service may help to keep the majority of long-distance relationships alive.

Distance is well known for being a major relationship-killer, even for partners who have been together for a long time, but these days technology seems to be doing its part to combat this problem. According to new research by Microsoft’s Idea Lab, Skype could significantly help a long-distance relationship’s odds of survival. Of all those surveyed in the US and UK during January, 96% of respondents admitted that video calls helped them to stay more connected to their partners even over long distances.

A further 41% of respondents found that video calling even served to improve their romantic relationships, while 47% went so far as to directly credit Skype for “keeping the love alive” when they were apart. Another 29% of Skype-using couples even admitted to using the service to for more “naughty” uses- whatever that means.
