In my chat box the messages i send to my friends they don't receive it but when i send them same messages through messages they receive it


Chances are the friend to whom you are sending might be accessing Facebook via mobile. Mobile Facebook does not provide chat notifications appropriately and it depends on the device too. When you send message or chat,both are now equal in Facebook. Recent Facebook version,what it does is, it combines chat and message into message section. Whatever you chat is sent as message to the person,if that person is offline or not responding to chat. If at the time of receiving message,you are online,then you receive it in chat window. At the same time,you might see notification in Message area.

Eventhough it is to an extent confusing,either way,you can reply/chat and you get all messages. In short,your message never gets lost. It gets to your friend. If he/she cannot see it in Chat,they can definitely see it in Messages section.

I want to thalk in facebook.


Facebook affords its users several means of communicating with one another, from public posts made to the collective News Feed and individual users' Walls to direct, private messages. Facebook also allows for real-time chat communication between users who are both online -- this doesn't, however, include an option to chat using video as of this writing.

How Facebook Chat Works

Facebook chat functions much in the same way as standalone chat clients, such as AOL Instant Messenger and Windows Live Messenger. To chat with another user on Facebook, he must be one of your contacts and also be online. Two categories of online friends exist: Available and Idle. Available friends, which appear at the top of your chat list and have green dots next to their names, are actively using the site and, therefore, more likely to be available for chat. Idle users are not actively using Facebook, and although they're signed in, they may not be at their computer to chat.
Chat Capabilities

Facebook Chat is simple and, as of this writing, permits you only to send text in most cases. The one exception is in the case of emoticons. If you type ":)", for example, a yellow smiley face appears. Beyond this, Facebook Chat's list of features is rather limited. If you don't want to chat within the main Facebook interface, you can pop out the chat box and continue your conversation in a separate window. You can also make yourself go offline if you don't wish to chat with others or to let them chat with you.
Links and Videos

Although you may direct others to pictures, videos and other multimedia within chat -- namely, via text links to the URLs at which they're hosted -- it's not possible to embed images and videos themselves within a chat message. Furthermore, Facebook Chat isn't capable of video chatting, such as programs like Skype and Windows Live Messenger. If you want to communicate with one of your Facebook friends via video message, you won't be able to do so using Facebook Chat.
Skype Workaround

One potential workaround to Facebook not having video chat among its features is using Skype's Import Contacts feature. In addition to being able to import contacts from email clients such as MSN Hotmail and Gmail, you can enter your Facebook credentials and cross-reference your contact list to see which of your friends are also using Skype. After you've done this, use Skype to make free video calls with your Facebook friends who use the program.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.com

My facebook chat is not working, what should I do?


I believe it is just offline, just click on the CHAT OFFLINE and it will bring back automatically to online. If not, try to use other internet browser like firefox,chrome or internet explorer 8 or 9. Regards

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:

Im online on facebook but i appear offline to my friends im so frustrated ;i cannot chat also. please help me


Hello thanks for using fixya
Actually your status on Facebook is as "Offline", thats why you are not able to chat with your friends and you appear them as "Offline"
To chat with your friends and make you visible you have to make your status as "online"
For this sign in your Facebook account, when your home page will open, On the left side down on the page there will be written that "you are currently offline to chat with your friends "Go online". Click on it and your status will become online.
To demonstrate it physically here given is a Picture which will surely help you out

Tried to look for a way to view who's signed on to Facebook Chat without having Facebook chat activated. Sometimes Facebook chat is a nuisance, and just want to turn it off. This way, i can turn it off...


'Appear Offline' lets you do that! Allows you to see who's signed on to Facebook Chat without having Facebook chat activated. You can poke and send Facebook messages to your online contacts from the Appear Offline page.

I'd like to be able to be on Facebook but be 'hidden' from my Friends so they don't know I'm online. Is there a way to do that?


As far as I know they cannot tell you are online unless you have the chat feature on.

Down where the chat box is in the lower right corner if you click on it to show all that are online, click the options tab at the top, and pick go offline.

This will make you offline for chat, but as soon as you click on it again it will put you back online, and you will simply just repeat the process to be offline.
