    I use go!Chat. Works fine, except that I only get favourites’ online notifications, nbut no offline nor message notifications, although all boxes are checked. When Go!Chat is offline, I get my message notifications through email, so my Facenbook notification parametres are correct. What could be wrong?

  • I hate FB Messenger, because since the last Update, I can’t log out, I’m online all the time! I get Messages like “hey, why do you not answer me???” and I can’t do anything but get this Messenger off my Android! I didn’t find a chat app for Facebook, where I really can get offline yet!
