Here is what the normal profile picture in Facebook chat looks like:

chat profile with no blur

But what or why is the little bit of blur showing on the profile picture (not the speech balloon with dots) in this next image?

facebook chat image with blurring

I'm using the Facebook chat on Windows 7 desktop and it's on the profile picture on the chat icon.

It sometimes happens and sometimes doesn't. I think it started to occur recently over the past week or so.

I'm not sure what they're doing when it happens, but I believe it lasts until the user is done typing.

  • Would you be more specific. What platform? I don't see any transparency that you refer to.

  • The only time I notice a blurring is when the other person sends the message and I receive it. But this lasts for a split second. How long does it last on your end?

It is an indication that the other person involved in chat is typing.

  • Updated an image to compare. Notice how the first image is blurry but the second one is not? They're both typing btw.
