Contact Lists

When you've logged into Chit Chat for Facebook. You'll be presented with a list of your Facebook friends that are online on the chat. There are four tabs in the application, and three of them are used as contact lists.

The first tab shows all of your “Online Contacts” – the Facebook friends of yours that are online.

Contact List

The second tab shows the “Conversations” – this is all the currently started chats you’re engaged in.

Conversations List

The third tab shows "Unread Messages" – your new messages received that you have yet to read.

Unread Messages

The advantage of this three tab system is reduced scrolling and contacts are easier to "reach" , moreover, it's easier to handle many conversations at once than in conventional phone instant messaging designs.

Clicking on a friend on any of these lists will open the chat screen where you send messages to your friends.

A green buddy icon indicates that a user is online; a red buddy icon indicates that a user is offline, and the orange buddy icon indicates that a user is away, and a yellow status icon indicates that you have an unread message.

Status Symbols

Advanced Features

At the top right corner you have a Search area where you can type the name of a friend you’re looking for, and it will hide all other users from your contact lists.

Search Filter List

If your Facebook friend list is gigantic, you can use the quick list scroll letters to the right edge of the screen to quickly jump to a specific letter in your contact list.

If you have opened chats with some friends, they will have an icon to the right of them in your contact lists. This icon is used to give you a quick indication which of your contacts you have an opened chat with. Icons are also used to show you if you have a new message from this friend, even if you are not on the “Unread Messages”-screen.

Notification Icons

At the bottom of the program there is a thin bar. This bar lets you know when friends are typing to you; it tells you when they change their status or other important notifications. It even shows you a preview of a received message.
