The chat feature is located on the bottom right hand of the screen in a small silver box. Click this and set yourself to online to see a list of friends who are also online and available for chat. Friends who are not online will not appear on the box. Click one of your friends to open up a chat session with that friend. Hope this helps!

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 disabled


Your Facebook chat might be disabled because:
  1. You might be using Old Browser. Certain new features of Facebook Chat is available only in newer browsers.
  2. Your connectivity speed might be low due to some faults in network. If this is the case,wait till connectivity resumes.
  3. You might have unchecked 'Available to Chat'. You can enable Available to Chat by clicking on Settings icon near chat window and enabling Available to Chat.

I'm trying to chat with friends. I type what I want to say.....then "Enter".....I see that what I typed went through....but my friends don't respond!....I see that they are still online...


Hi there, I've been experiencing the same issue with Facebook. Here's what you can do. instead of chatting through the chatbox, hit MESSAGES then use it instead on chat box. You can chat from there as long as your friend is online. Maybe there is a bug on Facebook.
Good luck!
