XMAS Nuggets 17 – Facebook – Are you always online?

Do you have had complaints from friends saying that you don’t reply to them even when you are online 24 hours a day? Sounds strange but for many people, Facebook shows an online status even when the person is offline.

If you use Facebook chat on your mobile then you are probably being shown as online all the time. Here’s how you fix it.
IM+ is the most popular instant messaging application for Windows phones, other Apps are available for this and others suffer from this problem. Read on and the instructions will be similar on your device.
You may or may not be aware that IM+ keeps you connected to your account even when the IM+ application isn’t running on your phone. So, if you are an IM+ user, your friends could be seeing you online on Facebook all the time, even when you are not online actually.
To fix it, open up IM+ application on your Windows Phone and sign in to Facebook. Now click on the settings icon at the bottom once you get connected to your Facebook chat. You will see settings for your Contact List, Notifications and Push Settings. Go to Push Settings. The first option will ask you if you want to keep IM+ connected to your accounts all the time, even when the application isn’t running. Turn the setting off; it is turned on by default. Now head back to the main contacts window and start enjoying your chat. Now, you won’t be shown online on Facebook even when you aren’t actually online over it.
