This week marks the launch of Facebook Chat—a new way for you to communicate with your friends in real-time.
We'll be rolling this out slowly going forward, but fairly soon you'll notice our new Chat bar at the bottom of your browser—no installation or assembly required. From this bar you can view your list of online friends and open conversations with any or all of them. There's no need to setup a "buddy list." Unlike the Wall or Inbox, the messages are delivered and displayed to your friend as soon as they're sent, so you should expect a response right away and without any page loading.
Facebook Chat Being Rolled Out [blog.facebook.com]
Another chat facility on the way.
When did Facebook become the driver of website functionality...?
but I can see people spending all day on a facebook page chatting away with their friends.. . . or looking at the entire picture galary of a friend's visit to Paris.
