Facebook can be considered as a platform in which users can make more friends than they can ever imagine. The friends list will vary across region as well as nationalities. But one fact is that it’s not necessary that all friends in Facebook can be considered as your best friends.
It’s for sure that users will give more preference to their limited list of best friends as well as relatives that they are more attached to. And while chatting with those relatives or close friends, any interruptions from the normal friends can be a means of disturbance for many users.
There is one way in which users can hide their online visibility on Facebook chat from any specific list of persons. By means of this method, only those relatives and friends that are close to you will know that you are logged in and the other friends won’t be able to know that the user has currently logged in.
The below mentioned steps has to be followed in a step by step manner.
