On every page, you will have access to your popular chats list (bottom right chat bubble). This list contains 5 of your most recent active chats and your 2 favorites. It will instantly show you any new messages and chat requests you have from other users and let you immediately reply. Clicking on any user in this list will automatically bring up the chat.
At the top of this list, you can set 2 users to be favorited and locked in to always show in your user’s list. To do this open a chat with a user and click the ‘heart’ icon. Click this again to remove them back to the default list.
There are three types of chat which will appear in your popular chats list and chats. They are labeled via the button to the right of your chats. ‘Sent’ are the chat requests you have sent and are faded out until accepted. ‘Requested’ are chat requests sent to you that have yet been accepted/declined. Finally, ‘Chat’ are chats which have been accepted by both parties included in the chat. On your chats page, you can filter by each of these chat types.
There are two features that you can purchase in addition to the free features. These are Boost and Strike. Boost will place your profile at the top of other user’s walls. Strike allows you to send multiple messages without the first one being responded to.
