I just got a new iMac and want to set up Facetime for me and my GF so we can chat while I'm out of town with her on my Mac at home and me on my iPad.

The problem is that I've set up my account on Facetime, but there doesn't seem to be a way for me to set up another account for her on my Mac, or even a way for me to sign out of Facetime after I set up my account.

Anyone know if this is even possible? If I can't set up multiple accounts, does anyone at least know how to reset it so I can just set it for her?


Thanks.

EDIT: found it. I wanted to say how, but I honestly can't remember exactly. I'll have to wait for my GF to get home to make sure it worked, One thing is for sure, Apple didn't make this thing very user friendly when you want to go beyond a simple single account setup! This sort of thing should be an easy menu option or preference setting, but it's not.

They're probably assuming you'd create a second user account on the machine and install Face Time there maybe?
