Does Google Talk works like Skype where anyone can Skype you and ask to be your friend.

Only a few people has my gmail address and I received a requested from someone in SA to be added to my list. There was no name.... just loads of numbers from mxit.co.za. I ignored it, but as it is the first time I received such a request on Google Talk I was just wondering if it works like Skype.
I should think so, yes, provided they have your email address.
I don't use either product but there is a useful entry on Google Talk in the wikipedia here
Thanks Ade..... this is very helpful!! :thumbs:
Hi Pronks, it is best to ignore contacts you don't know.
Skype is wonderful, just don't give too much info on your profile page. My sister-in-law put here mobile number, age and location and had strange people trying to contact her! :eek: :curse:
I find it weird how, if I'm online I can get calls from anyone.
People don't call me from names on the Phone directory... or even email me, ... why skype ? :confused:

Hi Popeye.... Yes, Skype is great! I was just surprised to get a "please add met to your contacts" from SA on GoogleTalk." I am not on GoogleTalk that much though. Get these Skype invitations quite often.... from around the world. Have hardly any info on my profile.
