Facebook “Chat” Annoyance

Facebook Chat annoyance

A friend asked me (via Facebook) how to use FB to follow a Twitter feed. As I was typing an explanation, Facebook decided to pitch its new “chat” feature. I wasn’t interested, so I clicked the “close” button. NOTHING happened! Well, nothing happened re the chat promo … but the interruption killed my ability to reply to her question. There was no way to get to the “send” button … in fact, the entire “message box” was hosed.

Fortunately, I was able to open my friend’s account in a new window, open a new message window, and paste my already-created reply. And then send.

All the while, the annoying “Facebook Chat Promo” popup remains intractable on the original page. The promo is not only “in your face”, it’s poorly executed.

Can’t even blame it on being on my Mac — I’m on a PC at the moment. Firefox 2.0.0.14.
