Facebook’s latest attempt to organize news feed for its users resulted in rolling out of a new feature for its web interface – Pop up conversations chat tab. The new dialog-tab threads comment replies into a new pop-up window. It is just like separate conversation tabs used for chatting under Facebook Messenger when News Feed is open.
So, is Facebook desperately trying to unravel an issue? I guess not! Facebook offers a solution for this. It allows users to turn off or disable the Facebook Pop up conversations tab feature via a simple setting. But before covering that, let’s find what was so special about this feature.
The pop-up conversation tab feature is primarily a pop-up that appears on the Facebook post you’re following. So, it appears whenever there’s any new activity made like, a comment on the post. You do not have to click the notification to read. It is displayed instantly under the popup window. Though useful in granting instant access, it appears intrusive & irritating for many like me, since it ends up cluttering my Facebook space.
Turn off Facebook Pop up conversations chat tab
By default, the feature is enabled. To disable it, login your Facebook account. If a pop-up conversation window appears on the main page of your Facebook account, click on the ‘Cog Wheel’ to open settings section.
Next, from the list of options displayed, select Turn Off Post Tabs or Turn Off Chat Tabs option – whichever you see.
Please note that if you have the sidebar hidden, you can disable tabbed posts from the Chat tab. Click the cogwheel button on the chat tab and select ‘Turn Off Post Tabs’ from the menu that appears.
Following this, no more pop-up conversation tabs will appear on your computer screen.
