I like the “Seen” chat status on Facebook. It let me know whether my friend has seen my message or not. But the fact is that many of my friends got rid off the “Seen” chat status feature on Facebook. So I can’t rely on the Facebook “Seen” status anymore! Why people opt out of the “Seen” chat feature on Facebook? Purely for privacy concern. It let the senders know when the message has been read. If read, the recipient has the responsibility to answer to it. Other wise, it causes an unfriendly situation. So better get rid off “Seen” chat status on Facebook. Read the messages sent by your friends on Facebook without letting them know.
