    To access the chat, we can swipe our finger on the screen from right to the left
    .
    Sometimes, it is more convenient for us to have people whom we chat with the most up on the list so that we do not have to scroll all the way down trying to find them or use the Search bar. How do we do that?

Questions and Answers

Pinning friends to chat on iPhone 4S?

I have searched for days to figure out why when I hit edit only around 10 of my friends are on the list. I have over 200 on the list before I hit edit. The friend I want to pin has been in my favorites on top before so I don't get it.

Was this helpful? Yes | No| I need help

You have to interact with that friend often to now appear in the list. Unfortunately, Facebook is always changing the rules of messaging lists etc. You also need the messenger app in order to now message properly from your iPhone.

How can I pin someone to my favorites when I search for them it says no result?

I had a friend pinned into my favorites list in chat on Facebook and I accidentally unpinned them and now I can't add them again I type their name into the search bar and it says no results but if I am not in edit I can scroll down and find them but when I am in edit I can only see 15 people. I have tried: I have tried everything I can think of. I think it was caused by: I unpinned them

Was this helpful? Yes | No| I need help

Facebook has listed a page explaining that you need to go into the list of Favorites and then select edit. One trick is to ask that friend to message you a few times. Then they should appear in the list again if they are not showing now. You may also want to see if there are available updates for the app.

How do you pin people that are not listed with a green dot already? I want to pin other people, and I'm only offered the option of about 10 to choose from. What sense does that make?

You can only have a max of 10 people in the list. To add a new person, you need to remove someone else. If you want more than 10 people then you need to create a group but then it would not be a private conversation as everyone in the group would see it.

How do I change my friend's last name on the sidebar. She changed her name, but it still shows up on my sidebar as her past name?

How do I change my friend's new last name on my iPhone Facebook sidebar. I have tried: I changed her nickname, but it still doesn't come up correctly on the sidebar. I think it was caused by: Her changing her last name

Update the app or sync it again so that her name change she did is recognized. The app will only change once it is synced or updates.

Friend profile disappeared on messenger on iPhone 6?

On the messenger page where you have a list of messages and who you sent them to: in the middle of the screen there are profile pics in circles of favorites. One of my favorites disappeared and I can't figure out how to fix it. This is a different screen display than the one on the video. It is accessed from Messenger, not Facebook. I have tried: Made sure my friend was still on the top of the screen you had in your video. I think it was caused by: No idea. Noticed it one day while I was about to send a message
