Having banged Google+ with the awesome feature video calling, Facebook comes with a new way of interaction tool between friends called Facebook sidebar or chat bar.

Next time you login to Facebook you will see a new bar on the right asking you to try the bar now.

After starting it, you will see a new side bar with all your contacts on the right hand side bar. The facebook page has been shifted to left a bit to accommodate the bar.

You can directly start conversation with your friends by clicking on their name and even call them via video calling feature.

You will see new settings below which you can configure based upon your interests.

The list of friends in your sidebar is based on who you’ve interacted with most frequently or recently on Facebook. Since it updates dynamically, you can’t manually add friends to the list.

The list shows both friends who are available to chat and friends who aren’t. Clicking on a friend’s name opens a chat window. If your friend isn’t available to chat, you can still send messages for them to read later.

You can search your any friend using the search box below to send offline  messages.
