    Ok if my friends come up with green beside them & they are available constantly what are they doing?

    Are they chatting to their other friends?

    Just wondering as don't want to be missing out on anything lol...do people just chat on FB or what else are they doing? X

    When the little green little circle comes up it just means they are online, it doesn't necessarily mean they are chatting to someone else, although they could be!! Hope that's of help!x

    As far as I'm aware it just means they are logged on and available for a chat if they wish to do so.

    Personally I don't like it and have disabled my 'chat' availability. If I want to chat to someone I'll do it when I fancy IYKWIM.

    I've a friend on with the green dot for hours, just wondered what on earth she's doing....when I send her a message she ignores it...I guess I should get the hint...lol

    So what else can you do on FB that I'm missing out on? lol

    Ahhh now that sometimes happens if they're logged on from a mobile device. My mate has a blackberry and if I try to chat to him on FB it then changes to offline! Chance is your friend is probably just checking from her mobile. If she logs out tho any unread messages should be sent to her inbox. Saying that tho this is FB we're talking about and it's not the most reliable!

    I do believe there's a new video chat option available but I only really go on through my iPhone now. Have you sorted all your security settings? That's important to do if there's anyone you don't want seeing your information, activity, pictures etc! x

    She could be just logged on hun ... just like I'm logged on to Minimins all day ... doesn't mean that's all I do all day :rolleyes:

    You can share photos with friends, play games (I love playing Scrabble with one of my Facebook friends), some of the games are quite addictive!

    I'm not sure if this applies to everyone but Facebook has become slightly stale ... me and my gang of mates hardly go on it these days ... but I know they are there if I need to share something :)

    That's probably it as she's on iphone so it looks as if she's available all the time when she's probably not...

    Yeah security all ok..thanks XXXX

    Your welcome!

    Like Ali says there are plenty games and things to play on on there! And there's lots of "fan" pages so you can see what your fave celeb is up to! Although I prefer twitter for that! ;) have you not been on FB long?x

    Good for you! When I first joined I accepted loads of people who I hadn't seen in years but every now and then I look through my list and delete people I don't interact with on there! And then I have a rule where if someone speaks to me on there and then they don't speak at the shops or somewhere they get deleted hehe!! Wish I just had my gang of friends and then my family!xx

    In my experience of when I tried it, they were making momentous life-changing decisions such as informing people they were bored, bored, bored and wondering whether to have chips for tea or maybe just a sandwich.

    I don't supposed its changed?
