Recently, when I was using Facebook I noticed that the submit button had disappeared. Confused? I’m talking about the Facebook submit comment button while posting a comment.

I don’t really understand the reason behind keeping a chat feature in Facebook. I know it’s meant for instant messaging! But, then what are Instant Messengers for? Facebook isn’t an IM, it’s just a social networking website. There are several reason why I hate the Facebook chat feature. Firstly, it’s buggy!
