How to turn off chat in Facebook


The messaging system Facebook can sometimes be more distracting than useful. The ability to contact you in real time chat can eat a large chunk of your time each day (depending on the number of friends, of course). Why not include a chat room for people you really want to communicate with in real time?

Luckily, Facebook has options to turn off chat for everyone except those you choose, or just turn it off for people who write too often to you. Here’s how to set it up:

Step 1: Open the Facebook account in your web browser. The easiest way to do this is from your computer, but you can also download the desktop version of the site from your mobile device.

Step 2: Open the chat area in the lower-right corner of the page, and then click the gear button and select “Disconnect chat.”

Step 3: Select the type of status in the chat room you want to use and fill in the names of people. It’s quick and easy, just start typing a name and Facebook will automatically fill it for you. Now you can enjoy peace of mind when your Facebook tab is open. What do you think about this? Share them with us in the comments.
