    I'm guessing practically everyone on here uses Facebook, but what about Facebook Chat? Does anyone use it much?

    EDIT: Post your reasons too

    If by use it, you mean post a message to a friend, the friend goes offline, replies then my chat ****s up and then the cycle repeats, then yes I use it all the time.

    I used to use it occasionally to talk to a few people but now it just irritates me because people would always end up talking just as I was about to get back on with uni work. I had a guy who wouldn't stop bugging me on there as well. Now I appear offline all the time.

    I use it quite a lot to talk to my flatmate who's in Germany, and also maybe 7 or 8 people from London and home, and then the odd people pop up every now and again just to say something specific. I'm not a fan of it though, mainly because half the keys on this keyboard are ****ed so I have to sit stabbing away at vitals like 'a' and 'n' for ages and it looks like I'm writing a fecking essay, and then quite often the enter key breaks down as well, and there's there's nothing that can be done because fb doesn't have a simple enter button :mad:

    You can even sort your friends list into groups so you can choose to appear visible only to certain groups of people

    Almost everyone that matters is on MSN, so I just appear offline when I'm on Facebook. There are occasions where I go online, usually due to a combination of boredom and curiosity. I do have a few friends worth talking to who don't have MSN so I sometimes talk to them on FB Chat, but it's rare.
