    As soon as we have access to the home screen, we need to open the Facebook app.
    The icon for it looks like a blue square with a white letter "F" on it. Give it a tap, and we are on the News Feed.

    To reach the chat, all we need to do is place a finger on the screen and swipe it to the left.
    Here is the chat. When we are logged in, we can see other people who are logged in and who are online now. In which case, we will see a green circle next to their names.

    Also, we can see when they have been logged in last time.
    For example, this person. On the right-hand side of her name, we can see that she's using the Facebook Messenger application and that she was online two hours ago.
