I know I turned this off a year or so ago, but I see it is back "on". While on FB, on the right hand side you can see who else is online fb. I do not want anyone to know that I am on there, and I can not find the answer through google, everything I read said that it can NOT be turned off. Anyone know better? Thanks. I will keep looking:-)

You're right, on the right side it shows who's online. If you click your friends name you can IM them. If you've disabled that feature no one should be able to tell when you're on FB.

I hate that feature. I get online for relaxation and don't want to be interrupted. If I send a message it's usually for their leisure to respond and I don't want anyone to feel like I'm stalking them.

I don't like to be bothered when online. I want to do what I like without interruption.
I want to relax and enjoy my time online.
I don't go on Facebook often about once every 5_7 weeks just to see pictures usually.
I find it extremely boring lol

I dont find it boring, ok actually most of it is boring, lol. Oh look, here what someone had for lunch, rolls eyes. It actually makes me very angry.....all the fake perfect people pretending they fart rainbows. And I certainly know better with some of them, so UGH. And some people have NO filters, like one of my kids! Shares way too much. I dont go on there very often, either. It tends to make my blood pressure skyrocket. But when I do, I dont want to "chat"!
