Chat on Facebook connects us with the friends in our Facebook lives, but given the limited features, chat on Facebook has never been a ‘fun’ chat platform. There is wide range of smiley codes available, but among all the disadvantages, there isn’t a single option to share a photo via FB chat.

The usual way is to share a photo with your friends on your Facebook wall then share the link with your friends, but in this case, everyone else would be able to see it and comment about it.

Conclusion

Now you can make your chat fun again with the newfound ability to share photos with your friends via Facebook chat box.
