Cisco Systems is rumored to have put in a bid for Skype, before it completes its planned initial public offering. That’s according to the web publication TechCrunch.

All of this comes just as Google has launched Gmail Calls – a VoIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) – and a potential major competitor for Skype. According to Google, within 24 hours of the launch of Gmail Calls users placed one million calls.

So tonight we’re looking at voice calls over the internet and how those networks measure up to mobile networks and social networks. Who do you think has more users? Facebook, Twitter or Skype? You might be surprised by the answer. Find out at 2000 CET!
