Last week, Mark Zuckerberg unveiled a new video calling feature for Facebook that would be backed by Skype. Sounds cool, right? Well, a comedian named Tom Kelly found a flaw in the feature that may make you think twice before chatting up your friend.

All jokes aside, Tom found out that if you use the browser Safari and minimize the chat window, it doesn't necessarily end the call. That means your friend can still see everything you're doing in front of your computer!
The comedian, who often appears on 'The View,' posted a video showing what happens, and says the only way to hang up on the session is to restart the computer. If you haven't tried the feature yet, it might be smart to take precautions when you do, since it just launched.

Have you tried Facebook video calling? What do you think of it? Do you like it better than Skype or iChat? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
