How To Disable Facebook Last Seen TimeStamp Feature On Messages


Some time around 2012, Facebook introduced a new feature known as the ‘Last seen‘ or ‘seen‘ message feature. This feature allows users on PC and some other high end smartphones like android to know the last time you were actually online on chat or whether or not your message has been read and this will be stated right in the chat message window.

I really haven’t been able to fully ascertain when or not the feature is supposed to display or not display. Recently i was having a chat with someone and even through the user was online, the seen message showed below the last message i had sent.

On another chat, the seen message appeared just when the user had gone offline and i was pretty sure the recipient had not read the message. Oh well. That isn’t the main purpose of this post. I quite understand some people are not cool with this feature and I’d like to share some tips on how to disable the Facebook Last seen TimeStamp feature displayed on a conversation screen.
