Facebook revs their chat-status, taking away those wisp-thin mobile phone icons in favor of big green text. I think I like.

Chat No More: Facebook’s little mobile phone icon edition.

Before I knew it, I had quit using gchat 24/7, and I had somehow “unlocked” a new gear of my mind. And while that took almost no energy, it turned out that facebook, as per usual, was more difficult to log out of chat absolutely. 

I made sure that my chat status was set to offline on all computers and iOS devices. But then, there was this little mobile phone icon that would show up next to my name in facebook chat. Do you want to kick this little icon out of your life too? Here’s how it worked for me.

After a lot of attempts to delete apps over and over again and click sign out, etc. nothing worked. Today I found the following instructions on a yahoo answers page, of all the places:

1) re-download the Facebook Messenger app

2) log in. Go to settings. 

3) click “turn off notifications until 8 am”

4) log out.

5) if the welcome page says something like “log in as Your Name” click “not you”

6) exit the app.

7) use multi-tasker (double click the home button) to delete the app from the current processes.
