I have strong resistance to using FaceTime to contact people and so have never used it before.  



I have no idea how this works and also could not find detailed directions anywhere.


In the same way that someone who has never used a computer or email would need to have a list of steps


that start with creating an email address,


to creating and sending messages, so do I need details on using FaceTime.  


I see that it stores my contacts phone numbers and email addresses but this does not explain how you


actually use it.



I do know that whoever you contact has to be on it at the same time.                                                             This still does not tell me how to contact them.   I also would like to know if Skype and FaceTime are the same thing.    Can someone on Skype contact someone on FaceTime?  



I opened up FaceTime and looked at it and know that I should first put on my make up.     I don't see what to do after this.    I also don't see any real help section for it (which is how I learned to do Excel and WORD without anyone to help me)


Can anyone help me with this?

It's easily done via email addresses. One party calls the other via their email address. This is done automatically in Facetime. iOS- Using FaceTimeFaceTime for Mac- About HD video calling
