Facebook is one of the biggest social networking site, apart from networking with friends, Facebook has an in-built chat messenger or Facebook chat client that lets you to chat with your friends online on Facebook. Sometimes, people might irritate you by pinging you on Facebook chat or spammers may annoy you through Facebook chat.

Once the chat window is opened, click on the Friends list and create a new list. You can create a new friends list such as office friends, family, school, close buddies etc. All friends not belong to a Friend Lists will be categorized as “Other Friends”. Type in the name to create a list and hit enter. Now just enter the names of your friends and select them into the list which you’ve created.

When you open your Facebook chat client, you can see friends are online the way you categorized your friends list such as office, family, close buddies etc. Now click on the green line beside these list names on the chat window. When you click on the specific list of friends and make it go offline. For example, Just click on the green light beside the friends list named “Office”, now you will appear offline only to your office friends.

For going offline or invisible mode on Facebook client is so simple, just make a friends list, name it and add your friends to the list. Now go to Facebook chat client, click on the green tube beside the list name and go offline or invisible to the entire list.
