    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.

    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.
