facial recognition feature
recently that aimed to make photo tagging easier, but ended up causing issues with user privacy.
Now, Facebook is introducing
new chat-related features
to make conversing with friends and family more convenient.
One new chat feature offers a sidebar much like the chat sidebar you see now, except it lists the people you message most instead of just everyone who is available.
Another new chat feature a multi-person chat that allows you to select certain friends and invite them to a group chat. Friends can be invited to a conversation by going into a regular chat with a person, then selecting "Add Friends to Chat." Also, the conversation's history is available in messages.
Last but not least, Facebook is working with
