A real business app for Facebook!

Iotum just released the first Facebook application I’ve seen that might actually be useful for business use. Their application: “FREE Conference Calls” (what a GREAT name!!!) – allows you to set up conference calls with your buddies on Facebook – AND your friends who aren’t yet on Facebook.

The application has a ton of nice features:

  • Just a couple of clicks to set up a call.
  • Enter a Time, Subject, and an Agenda,
  • Add your Facebook friends or anyone else, by email or by phone number,

And your call is on!

Call quality is pretty good, and the app is very easy to use.

Best Feature: Your friends will receive a Facebook message,  email and/or a text message with the call info just before the call! Makes it simple to just click on the phone number in your Blackberry to join the call.

One quibble – it would be nice if the app sent the call organizer an email and SMS message as well. It’s really nice to be able to call in via a simple click.
