Default Facebook video calling

Have any of you used Facebook video calling? The only thing I know about it is both participants need to have the software installed first.

Can't you also do that sort of thing with your cell phone?

Sure. Facetime on iThingies, there must be something equivalent on Android, there's Skype on everything. ANOTHER app to help Facebook advertise to me more efficiently? Nah, I don't think so.

Facebook has video chat and voice call. These are reachable by clicking on a friend's message link, and observing the top of the interface this opens up. There are telephone and video icons to activate these. I tried the telephone with one person (at his request) and he could not hear my sound, even though I checked the mic and it seemed okay. But I could hear his sound.

Given all the recent news about FB's privacy issues, I wonder if anyone really uses this "service" since my guess is that FB would either be listening or recording the conversation and/or the phone numbers used?

I'm not even clear on what the Facebook issue is. From what I understand a commercial interest found a way to skim/glean information from what was visible on people's facebook pages, not what was in their private messages.
