If you want to learn how to be online on Facebook iPhone, all you have to do is start the Facebook app on your “iPhone by” (if you have not yet downloaded it, proceed immediately by looking for it in theApp Store, it’s free) and swipe by sliding your finger across the phone screen from right to left. The Facebook chat bar will appear.

At this point, press the button of thegear located at the top right and select the item Activate chat that appears below, in this way you can activate the Facebook chat and be online for all your friends. From the same screen, you can also sort the names of your friends and create a list of “favorites” to always keep on top.

Another way to be online on Facebook iPhone is to install the app Facebook Messenger, which allows you to use Facebook chat as if it were a WhatsApp messaging system. This means that once you download the application and log into Facebook in it, you will always be online for your friends.

To be precise, your status in the social network chat will always appear as connected by mobile phone with next to your profile photo the number of minutes that have passed since you last opened the app. In this way, your contacts will understand that you are not connected to Facebook from the PC but that you can still read their messages via the iPhone.

In case of “second thoughts”, you can deactivate your online status in the Facebook app by swiping from right to left, pressing the button of thegear located at the top right and selecting the item Disable chat from the menu that appears at the bottom of the screen. Regarding Facebook Messenger, on the other hand, you cannot hide your status but you can disable the notifications of new messages by swiping from right to left, by pressing the button of thegear located at the top right and setting to OFF the switch relative to notifications. The setting will remain active for eight hours, after which notifications will be turned on again.
