To make yourself unavailable for both chat and video calling, click in the bottom right corner of the messaging sidebar. Then uncheck Available to Chat.

You will still be able to see the sidebar even if you’re unavailable to chat. To hide the sidebar, select Hide Sidebar from the same actions menu.

To make yourself available to chat again, return to the actions menu and select Available to Chat, or just click on a friend in your sidebar to start chatting.

To start a chat, click the name of the friend you want to chat with in the right sidebar of any Facebook page. If you don't see the person you want to chat with there, you can type their name into the search box at the bottom of the sidebar. If you don't see the sidebar, click Chat at the bottom right of the page.

Once you open a chat window, just type your message and press Enter or Return on your keyboard.

How you know a friend is available to chat:

Friends with a next to their names are available to chat
Friends with no icon next to their names are unavailable
