I’m not a fan of the Chat Head on Facebook iOS app. Chat Head is an interesting feature on the new Facebook Home. Those who live inside the Facebook world and uses Facebook messaging a lot will love this feature. But unfortunately, not everyone depend heavily on Facebook messaging. For me, most of my friends contact me via WhatsApp or Twitter.
Chat Head make more sense on the Android OS where the Chat Head can appears outside Facebook app. On the iOS, Chat Head can only appear in the Facebook App due to iOS restrictions. If you want to get Chat Head everywhere, you’ll need to jailbreak your iPhone. Which makes no sense at all. And when I’m in the iOS Facebook App, there is already a Chatbox button at the top which alerts me whenever there is a new message. So why would I still need Chat Head?
So I’ve decided to disable Chat Head on my iPhone Facebook App. It just makes no sense at all on the iOS platform to have Chat Head. Besides, the Facebook Messenger App is serving me well.
