Facebook’s “awesome announcement” a few weeks ago (one on one video chat) didn’t make much of a splash, because rival Google+’s “Hangouts” feature has 10-person video chats.To fill the void, Facebook app Social Hangouts¬†stepped up and built the group video chat Facebook couldn’t build.

Social Hangouts can create 20-person group video chats with your Facebook friends.
