Most Facebook users now use the Facebook chat instead of using a separate IM client. Facebook as well as Google plus has their own chat feature. You can share your recent status, images etc at those social networking sites. Facebook and Google plus also allows to insert emotions which makes the chatting more funny. But sharing an image with your friends right into the Facebook chat window is not a simple task.
The widely used technique is pasting the image link at the chat window and your friend will only get to view the image when he/she clicks on the link or paste the link at the browser’s address bar. If you want your friend seeing the image you sent via chat instantly without leaving the chat window, you can apply a little trick and you can paste the image directly into the chat window. Here is how to display images into Facebook chat.
You will get two types of image to display in Facebook chat window:
1. The images from the Facebook i.e those images which are already uploaded at Facebook.
2. The images from your PC.
How to display Facebook Images into Facebook chat
Every time an image is uploaded at Facebook, it automatically generates a unique id (fbid) for that image.
Now if you want to display any such image from Facebook, simply grab the image id and paste it at the chat window placing between “[]”. For instance if the fbid of the image is xxxxxxxx then simply place [[xxxxxxxx]] at the Facebook chat window and hit the ‘Enter’ key.
Voila! It will display that image right into the Facebook chat window. But if the image is too big, the above procedure will work but the image will not be clear as it will become too small and hardly good for the view. For big images, follow the trick discussed later in this article.
