My motive was not that . I am a quiet new member to facebook and have only 29 friends . All of them are either my close friends or my relatives . The facebook chat is a great option to communicate with all of them . But I see many people just using the facebook chat and not the other chats like gtalk or yahoo even though they are members of that . Is it a way to avoid being noticed by others ? And there is another great feature in facebook chat . That is you can choose to whom you want to be seen as Online and to whom you want to be seen as offline . So what do you feel ?

I signed up to get friends. I do not like the chatting option in facebook, gtalk is better. Even yahoo and gtalk has those facility of changing chats options.

I use Facebook more than any other site . I have just 29 friends in it . It is a all in one portal for connecting with our friends . Facebook is great . It is always better than Twitter .

Same here. Facebook is a nice way to connect with old friends and share photos and thoughts. I rarely use chat but exchange of photos is done most often.. You know there are more than 100 million active users currently accessing Facebook through their mobile devices. People that use Facebook on their mobile devices are many. They currently provide their mobile services for free, but please be aware that their carrier's normal rates and fees, such as text messaging fees, will still apply.

I signed up in facebook because everybody is using it and most of the people in my place is using it. I didn't want to be called ignorant so I used it. I signed up not knowing all the features, I didn't know that there were games and chat etc... But I am glad I did, because chatting in facebook is much easier.
