Facebook announced yet another change to its chat system that will once again let users see all of their online friends -- a reversal from changes made to Facebook chat last month that only displayed those a user messaged most.
Facebook announced the change in a "status message" on its company profile page, citing "a lot of feedback that people missed seeing all of their online friends" as the reason.
"Today, we made a change so that Chat now shows the friends who you message the most, as well as the rest of your friends who are currently online," the status message read.
While many of the people who commented welcomed the change, just as many called for the chat system to be taken further back.
"If it aint broke, dont fix it," said one user in a comment.
The change comes two days after the social-networking giant announced the release of a new app for Apple's iOS (which runs on the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch) and Google's Android called Facebook Messenger. The app lets users send Facebook chat messages to Facebook friends, as well as to people in their smartphone's contact books as text messages.
Over the last couple of months, Facebook has been making changes to its messaging system that seek to blur the lines between text messaging, instant messaging and Facebook messaging.
