Although I use facebook a lot, I never want to use it for chatting. In fact, I never even want people to know when I am online. By following these steps, you will always appear “offline” and facebook chat will be turned off.
My wonderful wife asked me how to disable Facebook chat tonight. As much as I enjoy Facebook, the chat mechanism always seemed ultra annoying to me.
1. Log into Facebook.
2. In the bottom right-hand corner of the screen, click the Chat button.
3. When the chat window appears, click the Options tab.
4. Select Go Offline
To enable it again, just click the Chat button.
When chat is disabled, nobody can tell when you are online.
