The inbox is where Facebook made the biggest changes. You still see the first few most recent messages at the top of your screen, followed by a new Favorites section, which highlights people you message most frequently, so you can quickly pick up your last conversation.
In the Active Now section, you can see that a good friend or colleague is available in the moment. Maybe that will prompt you to make contact.
Facebook is also adding helpful reminders like people’s birthdays so you can wish them a happy day. This has been a feature in Skype since an eternity.
