Teleconferencing in the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

Coronavirus impact on teleconferencing is part of its impact on Internet usage and as a replacement for cancelled events as well as daily business meetings and social contacts. Teleconference companies such as Zoom Video Communications and DingTalk have seen a sharp increase in usage, accompanied by attendant technical problems like bandwidth overcrowding and social problems like Zoombombing.[1][2][3]

Virtual happy hours for "quarantinis" have been held using the technology during this time,[4] and even virtual dance parties.[5]
