Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

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 on facebook, update status, photo comments, etc, just not the live chat. Is this a common problem?

    What I mean is I can chat with others no problem, but at the same time is it possible some people can have dongle related problems with several aspects of FB including the live chat.

How do I get a sidebar for friends list on my facebook ?


If you don't see the sidebar, just click Chat in the bottom right corner of your screen, which shows the same list of friends you'll find in your sidebar."
To chat with any friend in the new sidebar, click on their name and the chat window opens up.
You'll know when a friend is available to chat depending on the icon next to their name.
If friends aren't available to chat, you can still send them a message and they can read it later. Chat messages are also viewable via the Messages (email) box.
To chat with a friend not listed in the new sidebar, start typing their name in the search box at the bottom of the list.

Make facebook my home page, facebook keeps dissconnecting me


Is it just facebook or your internet connection ??..
The Facebook Chat feature allows you to send and receive messages in real time with friends who are online.
Your chat box reveals a list of available friends you can chat with by clicking their names.
For those times when you're not up for chatting, you can choose from several different privacy options, including disconnecting Facebook Chat.
You can opt to disconnect it completely, or just partially allowing chat availability for certain people and not others.
You can reconnect in a few quick steps.
Facebook Chat Availability

Your Facebook Chat availability determines how you appear in your friends' chat lists.
When you're logged in to your Facebook account, your name appears in the chat sidebars of any friends who are currently logged in.
When you set your chat preference to available, a green box appears next to your name.
When you're available, but idle, a grey moon appears next to your name.
When you're unavailable, your name appears without an icon.

Adjusting Chat Availability
Adjust your chat availability to control the visibility of your name in friends' chat lists.
Sign in to your Facebook account and click the "Chat" box in the lower right corner of any page to open your chat list.
Click the "Options" icon in the upper right corner of the box.
Click "Go Offline" to disconnect your chat availability.
If you're using the Facebook Chat sidebar, click the "Options" icon in the upper right corner of the box. Click the "Chat" box to open the sidebar if it isn't showing up on your home page.
Click the "Available to Chat" option to delete the check mark, making yourself invisible and unavailable to chat. Click the "Limit Availability" option and use the resulting pop-up to choose which friend lists you wish to remain visible to. This allows you to chat with some friends without others knowing you're logged on.
Disconnected Facebook Chat
Once you disconnect Facebook Chat or limit your chat availability, your online presence will be invisible to other users.
You can still browse the Facebook site as you would normally.
The appearance of your chat list won't be altered by your availability; you'll still be able to see which of your friends are online and available to chat.
That is, as long as their chat availability isn't hidden or disconnected.

Your Chat Messages

If a friend attempts to message while your Facebook Chat is disconnected, the message will be delivered to your Facebook inbox.
You'll receive an on-site notification, as well as text or email notifications if you're set up for that, alerting you that you have a new message in your inbox.
Click the "Message" icon that appears in the upper left corner of any page upon signing in to your Facebook account.
Any new messages will appear in the drop-down list. Click the "See All Messages" link at the bottom of the box to access your inbox and respond to any messages.

Hello,

It sounds like your account was hacked or an app you were using was sending spam. This is becoming more common on facebook. Your account most likely was suspended by the facebook support staff. You will need to contact them through the help page on facebook.com to see if you can regain account access.

How to send scrap in facebook. This social networking website not better then the orkut so please take the scrap option in facebook. I know . you are saying me you were use the orkut .


Facebook has two messaging steps other than chat.
wall post: Goto ur friends profile and write in the box. This is called wall posting.Its visible to all ur friends unless u change privacy settings
message: goto ur inbox and send them a message.It's only visible to u and the person u r sending.Messages are private.

Facebook Does not Provide the facility of Scraps. There is Wall Posting. You can post Comments and messages on your friends wall.
Here is what you need!!!

Hope This Helps!!! Please Don't Forget to Rate my Response!!! Thanks!!!

There isnt a clear chat history option on my chat box


Hi there Tabby,

This sometimes happens to most Facebook users using the Chat functionality. If your chatmate/friend is still logged in, you can logoff temporarily for like one minute then login back. Next, ask your friend, the one you are chatting to a while ago to send you a message. The chat box will popup again and this time, containing your previous message.

Please let me know if this helps you. Thank you for using FixYa.

My chat doesn't work?


If you're chatting app doesn't allow you to chat, then what is its use? You should use an app that will easily allow you to chat with the people you want.
I can suggest you use kik online. This is a newly arrived online messaging app that will allow you to chat easily and for free from around the world.
You can connect with the person available in your contact or out of your contact.
Use it once, I hope you will like it!!!
