You need to have an application that works with a web cam. I use cheese Install cheese for that matter.

Install cheese by running the following command in a terminal:

sudo apt-get install cheese

After installing it, open it and you can now use the web cam.

If Cheese doesnt work for you, try Camorama. Its also found in the Software Center. I think its better than Cheese. I couldn't get Cheese to work on my Acer Aspire One but Camorama worked right out of the box!
