Facebook Adds Icon Next To User Names In Chat, With Link To That User’s Timeline

Facebook added another feature to its desktop chat function: an icon next to a user’s name that provides a link to their timeline when hovered over.

It certainly seems like a lot more useful addition than the last tweak Facebook made to chat — emoticons.

Readers: Has this new feature been rolled out to you yet?

Thank you to Social Yeah Founder Kevin Evanetski for the tip.
