Right after the changes made to the Facebook Chat window, there came another change to the Notifications which let you know when people take actions on Facebook related to you, so you can quickly check out a photo you’ve been tagged in or read a new posting on your Wall and so on…
They already are made available to your home page or from the notifications icon within the Facebook Chat bar at the bottom of your browser, make sure you know immediately when your friends are sharing something new with you.
Beginning today, when you are online with Facebook Chat, entire notifications will appear automatically and in real time above the Chat bar as pop-up alerts. For instance, if a friend has written on your wall, you’ll see a new notification appear like this:
After a few seconds, the notification will automatically disappear, but you’ll still be able to see a list of all of your notifications when you click on the notifications icon. You’ll also continue to see a count of all the notifications you’ve not yet viewed, indicated in red.
