When you go visit a friend’s profile, now you can see right next to the name if they are online or not! See that green icon-thingy next to ‘Rahul Sharma‘, that’s declaring he’s online (he’s an AWEsome guy by the way)!
POINT TO BE NOTED: You need to be online to see the if the other person is online or not, or the green icon-thingy doesn’t appear. Quite basic/obvious thing, but worth pointing out anyways!! 🙂
P.S. It’s an empty circle if the person is OffLine!
