    Hey, have you noticed that on facebook, when someone can be reachable on their mobile, a little "phone" icon appears next to the name (on the chat side bar, for example).

    Is this possible, using a Windows Phone???
    [s]That might be that the person has their account activated for text messaging via Facebook settings[/s]. I'm fairly confident mine shows me perma available (green dot no phone) since I stay logged into chat through Live Messenger.

    ETA: I changed my mind I have no idea how to get that set up, there is no way a few of my friends allowed Text messaging through FB on their mobile.

    According to this:

    How can I tell if my friends are online to chat?
    Use the symbols next to your friends' names to figure out who's available to chat:
    Friends with a [green dot] next to their names are available to chat
    Friends with a [mobile icon] next to their name have downloaded one of the Facebook apps (ex: Messenger or Facebook for iPhone)
    Friends with no icon next to their names are unavailable
    They might be using the Facebook app or Facebook Messenger for iPhone or Android.

    This is far more likely, nice find.

    I like WP Facebook, much easier to use than IOS or Android.

    Has anyone else had a photo sent to them in a PM via facebook on the WP app, as I have and I cant view it on my phone, it just looks like a blank message, I had to view facebook through IE instead of the app to view the photo.

    Am I the only one who is having a hard time with the notifications from facebook app?`
    The notifications are SO delayed, when I get notifications it is usually something I checked on the PC an hour ago or so, and one I go into the app checks all notifications and updates all, it still doesnt remove the red number on the livetile.
    This is absolutely the most frustrating about the app.
    I could ofc. just disable the function, but it's a function I really want :)
