    Come on/come to

    Hi there,

    Please just check if they are okay or not, if not please give me better solutions.

    "Please come to skype.
    Please come on skype.
    please catch me on skype.
    please come to FB and let's have a chat."

    I have provided some contexts. I want to know how should we invite someone on a social network like facebook, skype, yahoo messenger etc. Please let me know which is more natural and day to day used. Till now I have been using the above way but now I feel they are not appropriate.

    Thanks,

    Re: Come on/come to

    I would say "Please get on Skype, facebook, twitter, or whatever."

    Okay! you would say "get on". Then "come on" is wrong? Doesn't it make sense?

    Please come to sSkype (so we can chat). Sounds okay to me.
    Please come on Skype. Sounds strange to me, but is technically okay.
    Please catch me on Skype.
    Sounds okay to me.
    Please come to FB and let's have a chat.
    Sounds okay to me.

    I might also say, Meet me on Facebook (Skype) so we can chat.

    "Come on" would make sense if you were already on Skype and asking someone to join you there.
