When you chat with your friends or non friends in facebook messages, there is a feature that notifies the other person whether you have opened and seen that message or not. Facebook Message seen notification can be turned off if you already have Adblock Plus installed in your desktop or laptop browser. Google chrome has some dedicated chrome extension to block or remove facebook seen message notification. But you dont have to install another extension and load up more RAM memory when you have Adblock Plus already installed in your browser.
The above filter should be added to Adblock Plus extension filter list, and it prevents your friends, non friends in facebook chatting with you knowing that you have read the message or not. Not every body and all situations like to tell the other person whether they read the message or not. Privacy matters sometimes and you have to do some tweaks with the software to get that.
