    I'm no programmer, but in my mind this seems like a relatively simple thing to implement. I would love to see a way for people on Facebook to tell the difference from when I'm logged on via the computer vs. being logged into Facebook chat on the phone. I can't get back to people as quickly if I'm only logged in on the phone and obviously, I type more slowly. Couldn't Microsoft and Facebook work out a Mobile status for chat?

    It hasn't been that way for me. Maybe I'll dig a little deeper.

    It shows a mobile phone instead of the green dot when the user has the Android or iOS app installed on a device. However, the WP8 chat feature literally has you logged into chat (not just being installed on device).
