Facebook Chat Update : Control Who Sees You Online via Friend ListsFacebook pushed some updates to its chat system. People can now go stealth mode and hide their online status from some friends, while staying online for the others.

You can now categorize your friends into different lists, like family, colleagues etc and set the availability setting for each list. Once you create a list, you can either drag and drop contacts into it or if they are offline at that time, you can manually click the edit link and add users one by one.

When you appear offline for a particular list, the contacts in that list can’t see your online status and neither can you see if they are online or not. The stealth mode can’t be applied to particular users but you’ll have to create a list of contacts for appearing offline to them.

"With Wave 3 of Windows Live Messenger, Microsoft introduced a new feature – Photo Sharing. This feature, when an image file is dropped into an active conversation window, starts a sharing activity allowing you to share photos with family and friends. Fun right?

The feature sucks though, because…

* It’s not clear the person you’re chatting with can see the image.
* The sender already knows what the image looks like (i.e. why do I want to see again, enlarged on my screen?)
* The not-downloaded, downloading, and downloaded (gray, semi-gray, and colored respectfully) progress indicator is too subtle for Mom and Dad users.
* The feature engulfs the entire window, making image-related chat impossible.

With Paul Thurrott and I working on the Windows 7 Secrets book, sending images to each other is a common (yet nightmare) task. To mitigate the issue, we simply turned to Live Mesh (or the occasional zip file) for transfer. Fed up with this solution, I sat down late Friday evening and starting peeling back the layers of Messenger..."
