Facebook Reeeaaallllyyyyyyyyyy Wants You to Chat

The ‘boys in blue” over at Facebook seem to be pretty keen on tinkering these days. Whether these changes can be attributed to the new Google Plus challenge, or simply a freshening, I think everyone can agree on one thing…



This, dear Facebook, is not an improvement on the chat feature. It is a very odd, slightly annoying upgrade that does not add much to the user experience. While your users with poor eyesight might applaud this change, making it pop up each time you consider chatting is going to ensure that Facebook is no longer on the AskPPCBlog Holiday card list.

What are your thoughts on this new chat feature? Annoying? Game changing? Life changing?
