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.

Friend getting my chat text but unable to send chat back to me


Most times, its the problem with the network. When the network is poor, a party could be online but visible to the other party as offline.
If this happens with just one of your friends, and you do not have the same problem with other friends, then the problem is from your friend's network.
But if it happens with all the friends you chat with, the problem is from your network.
Whichever is the case, if this only happens once in a while, then spare the network. It could be one of those days. But if this continues, you might consider switching to another network connection mode.
Hope that was helpful?

Is it possible to access my own facebook account without everyone else knowing I'm on it?


No one knows if you're logged in or not unless you post something or if your Facebook Chat is active. You can try disabling your Facebook Chat so no one will know you're online, or you can also make a Friend list, and put it in "Offline Mode" in chat and put people that you don't want to see you online.

To disable Facebook Chat, follow these steps:

1. Click on the small person icon in the Facebook chat tab located in the lower right corner to open the Facebook chat application window.

2. Click on the "Options" tab in the Facebook chat application window.

3. Click on "Go Offline." By clicking "Go Offline" only a couple of things will change: you won't be able to see who is online and they cannot see that you are online. You can stay on Facebook without receiving any more annoying pop up chat messages. The small person icon in the lower right-hand corner will now read "Offline."

4. Once you have clicked the Offline option, you remain offline in future Facebook sessions automatically unless you choose to go back online. You have now successfully turned off Facebook chat.

To create a Friend list refer to this link:

Hope this help. Goodluck!

Send your friends email telling them to recognize as chat mates on facebook. Once they reply providing the connection authorizations, chat should take place whenever each person is online.

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!!!

My chat always appears online even though im


Hello,

Is this with facebook? I am having the same issues as well. Also with the Feeds not showing properly. Currently, the website is undergoing maintenance so we need to wait until it works again.

Alternatively, try switching from different browsers.
