Few mins back I have observed that, I could see a new section to the right of my Facebook page which ask me .. “A Faster Way to Message”… “Try It Now”.

On clicking try now button it started showing me a list of friends who are online with a green dot like we had before on the chat-box. It gave me an option to directly message them if they are not online. Well by default if no friends are online it will show you the friends with whom you do more conversation based on some algorithm.

Facebook is making a lot of changes in its design these days, are they more cautious with their design now ? since Google is coping it for plus  or it was a part of the plan, never mind. 🙂

Well I liked it, this new fixed friend list feature allows you to see all your online friends any time, even when your are on any other Facebook page or profile. Previously you had to click on the chat window to right side of the page, which would open up a irritating menu with your online friend list. Here you can type and search for your friends too.

If you have not tried, try it out now and do post your feedback and review on this 😉
