Facebook chat sidebar shows web or mobile activity

Facebook is always updating its social media website to make things a lot easier for its users, and now we can see that they have revamped the chat sidebar.

The Facebook chat sidebar now shows active icons, letting you know if your friends are on the web or mobile in text, and it also show the mobile icon.

The mobile or web text will show up in green if your facebook friends are online for chat, it is similar to Facebook Messenger in a way and will show you if the user is active on the web or on their mobile phone.

This is good really, because if your friend is on the web it does not matter how long you send your message, when on a mobile you do not really want them to get a long chat message. Gives you a little input if they are on their laptop, PC or mobile phone.

Are you seeing the new Facebook chat sidebar with the active mobile and web feature? Please do look at our screenshot below taken from our OSM Facebook page.
