Facebook Chat is a Facebook feature that allows people to chat with each other in real time. It is similar to Yahoo Messenger and such other applications, except for the fact that it can be used directly in Facebook without switching windows. Facebook Chat requires the latest browser versions for each browser provider, so it is recommended to update them regular if you want to use Facebook Chat. To prevent spam, Facebook Chat only posts messages that are so long; longer messages aren't processed.

Facebook Chat can be accessed on the the lower bar while on Facebook. Simply click on the button next to the notifications button, choose any online person to talk to, and begin a nice conversation. Facebook chat had ended the conversation craze of the Inbox.

Users can insert pictures inside the chat by pressing the camera icon in the bottom-right corner of the chat screen and uploading from their files.


Along with images, users can insert a variety of unique character stickers to exemplify certain feelings, such as being hungry, sad, or tired. Some popular stickers include Hello Kitty, Pusheen, and Peanuts.


Users of Facebook chat often comment on the lag that comes with it, especially on low-performance computers. They also comment on how the application occasionally does not work at all. Besides that, most people believe that the chat system was well-implemented.
