My facebook was working fine but for about a week now it's not working properly. I can't chat with friends, make comments, update status, post on walls or send messages. The links don't do anything. It works fine on other computers at work etc but not on mine. Please help with any suggestions. I've been on various forums, and many people have this problem! WHY?????

Ok if your using IE7 go to tools internet options look for browsing hsitory and press delete then delete all the check the box and hit ok 

Alternatively you can avoid such hassle from Internet explorer (causes facebook to lagg) you can download anotehr web browser such as mozzilla firefox , opera or safari.

That also happens to me from time to time. Usually after I restart my internet browser, everything works again. You might want to try clearing your internet cache and cookies.

How to Insert Friends names in Status updates and comments?

You can update your status in Facebook from Home and Profile page. If you want to include name of person whom you want to convey the message, then type @ first,followed by the name of person you want to include. You can get the names of your friends in dropdown that appears once you start punching in letters. You can include friends in comments also by using @.<br /><br />When you include your friend in status update via @, then those friends will see it in their wall,but nobody can comment on that post in your friend's wall.One have to click 'View Post' to open the post and then can comment on that same post. But friends can comment on the same wall post in your profile.<br /><br />You would get notifications like ' &lt;your friend name&gt; mentioned you in a comment/wall post'.<br />

I cant send messeges in chat when my friends are online.

While your account is unconfirmed, you will not be able to send messages, write on your friends’ Walls, post in discussions, poke, tag your friends in photos or notes, comment on content, join groups, or fan Pages. This limit is in place due to security reasons.

Hi, I open up a chat box to message friends on Facebook, but they mentioned that they have problems with the chat facility, something to do with a USB dongle with bad signals. They can do everything else...

a usb dongle can be replaced, as far as facebook problems, that is on thier end and nothing you can do about thier servers chat being down..
Please post again here if I misunderstaood your question..
