Facebook Chat Offline

Sometimes Facebook users just want to stalk without interruption.

Facebook Chat, while a useful tool for chat, can be a constant source of interruption from your social network activities. So, what do you do?

For users who wish to set Facebook Chat offline, the "Options" section allows users to block incoming IMs and a number of other settings.

Users who set Facebook Chat offline do not appear to their friends on the contacts list, even while browsing their accounts.

Users can also appear offline on Facebook Chat to individual friends, so you can continue to use the Facebook Chat client while avoiding people you do not want to IM with.

Ready to get started?

Badri, the newest version of Facebook Chat gives you an option under the chat room settings. To get there, click the “Chat” tab and click the cogwheel. Then, press “Available to Chat” to uncheck this option. This should take you offline.

If you want to limit who can contact you, you can also click “Limit Availability” and choose which groups of friends you wish to chat with on Fb,
