Answers :

Are your friends using the same messenger? there's a lot of messenger you can download (skype, msn messenger, yahoo messenger, etc. etc). If both of you are using different messenger your friend will not be able to see you. But if all your friends were using the same messenger and having the same problem I suspected it's your messenger that is causing the problem

Uninstall the messenger that you are using then reinstall it back again.

If you don't have an installer, try downloading the msn messenger from here:
msn-(http://download.live.com/?sku=messenger)
ym- (http://messenger.yahoo.com/)
skype - www.skype.com
If you have the webcam center opened along with with msn then it wont work on either one of them.
you can try these steps tp check if it works for you or not.

1)look for the web cam center system tray icon and right click on it if its there and select exit

and as u said u cant see you self in web cam console --- in webcam console you can only see your self under the doodling tab and only of your webcam is working at that i.e

either you have the webcam center opened or any other messenger or software which turns on your cam then only ull be able to view your cam in webcam console alongside.
