I like Facebook Chat, but I want to hide from specific people. Is there an easy way to do this?

Make a friend list of those you do not want to see you online by clicking on Create New List.

You can then move those individuals to the list by clicking on Add to List.

Click on Chat in the lower left corner.

Then toggle the offline status (green toggle next to the list name) of that particular friend list.

  • Nice presentation!
