Ew, FB chat is the WORST. I’m just always offline so I don’t have to think about it. Ugh.

This is EXACTLY why I make lists, so I’m only visible as online to the people I actually might want to chat with. 

My husband is on a list all by himself so that he can always chat with me.  I’m only visible to everyone else when I feel like it…and even then, there are some people I’m NEVER visible online to.

haha so I use the facebook Ipad app and rarely ever use my computer. Apparently you can chat on the app but I never knew it. So I get this really upset email from a friend asking why I refuse to answer her on f-book chat. Oooops.

@missfireslayer: yeah people were not so happy about me ignoring them.  But now it gives me a good excuse.

I hate how random people feel the need to chat with you. You’re my friend’s second cousin, I met you once. Do not talk to me unless it’s IRL, lol.

I remember when the facebook chat thing was new and I got annoyed because random people would start talking to me about random, stupid things.  From then on…I have always been “offline.”

How do you hide yourself from friends on FB chat?  I need to do that!

I’ve been “offline” on FB chat for over a year now. I couldn’t stand it.

  

@MightySapphire: On the left, mine currently says, “You are offline…to go on online click here”. It’s been so long since I changed mine to offline, but I believe yours will say the same as mine, but the opposite? Basically, just look to where it lists your online friends and you should see the “go offline” option. 😉

Yah…I am permanently offline. I feel like it’s an invasion of my privacy for people to know the minute I sign on and force me to chat!

@MightySapphire: Also, if you make ‘friend lists’ so you can have a ‘list’ for only your SO, only your friends, co-workers, etc, so only certain people can see that you’re online. It’s so handy 🙂
