Facebook announces Video Chat: Catch up Technique?

Facebook just announce a new feature within Facebook called Facebook Video Chat.  This is interesting since Google+, the new social networking site, has a Hangout feature where you can video chat with more people.  Since Google+ is receiving more and more people liking the site and using it, it seems that Facebook is trying to catch up in the video side.

Facebook Video allows you to video chat with any of your friends who have a web cam for their computer.  This is similar to a few other websites that allow video chat such as Skype and now Google+.  I like the idea behind Facebook’s new feature but think it is going to be seen as a catch up to these other sites that have already been using a video chat feature.
