How to hide your Active Status on Facebook Messenger
When I hit the office each morning, I check ‘communication’: texts, email, Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook Messenger. I receive more and more Facebook messages each and every week. Facebook Messenger seemingly is overtaking email as the preferred electronic communication tool.
1. This is an easy fix. Look in the lower right hand corner of your ‘Facebook screen’. See the little gear? Click on it.
Next, you will see all sorts of fun stuff on which to click: Chat Sounds, Emojis, ‘Who to Block’ Settings, etc.
2. Watch how easy this is: left click on ‘Turn Off Active Status’.
3. I chose to ‘Turn off active status for all contacts’. Click ‘Okay’ and you are done!
