kim Hi, the new version is out, and I can't seem to find it or get it to work. I still have the last version and try to update it but doesn't seem to do anything. We are older people and are lost. Where are the friend's list and the rest? Can anyone direct me to the right version as I only end up with some useless message box with nothing else in it no friends list no PC to PC call nothing? We need help or our relationship after 15 years will be over if we can't communicate, we need help.
