Fighting loneliness during self-isolation: stay in touch through the COVID-19 pandemic with free conference calls

Fighting loneliness during self-isolation is becoming a growing concern as the coronavirus crisis mounts. Governments in Spain, France and Italy have already imposed strict social distancing measures. In Spain, most people have been restricted to their own homes except to visit a medical professional, buy medicine or visit their nearest shop. Meanwhile, French cinemas, cafes, shops and other venues have closed and the public urged to remain home. Italians have been on lockdown for days. Here in the UK, it is expected that over-70s will soon be instructed to self-quarantine, too, reportedly for an extended period of time.

Luckily, there are ways for families and loved ones to stay in touch.

The free conference call business model: How can it be free?

A lot of people have (very valid) questions about the free conference call business model. It’s not surprising people are curious. Conference calling is part and parcel of daily life – and not just in business. That such a powerful and ubiquitous tool should be free can seem quite remarkable for two reasons.

Firstly, we tend to associate value with cost (pretty logically). How can something that’s simple enough to be free be so useful? Actually, it’s in part the fact that they can be free that makes them so valuable for many demographics. For example, free conference calling allows charities to maintain internal and external communications without eating into their budgets. That means they can do even more good, and foster collaborations with other organisations. At the same time, they aren’t having to use funds that could be put to researching how best to achieve their philanthropic goals, or hiring talented people who can help them do so. Likewise, free NHS conference calls mean telecommunications aren’t using up money that should be put to treating people.
