How To Look Offline On Social Media Platforms

“Social Media Platforms are overwhelming!”

We all would agree that it can be written in blood letters on a wall. It is true that one might find it hard to keep them away from using social media platforms like Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp and more. You must have been stuck at times when you don’t want to talk to a person but he can see that you are online. What a wild mess it feels!

Let’s discuss some ways through which you can hide your status on several platforms.

Whats App Last Seen

There is a setting on WhatsApp through which you can hide your last seen. Last seen shows when was the last time you were active on the app. Once you hide your last seen status, no one would be able to see when you were active last time. But you won’t be able to see last seen status of anyone likewise after that.

Go to Settings> Account> Privacy> Last Seen. After this you will see three options; Everyone, Nobody, My Contacts. Select Nobody and you are good to go.

Active Status On Facebook

You don’t want anyone to see you are active on Facebook even though you are spending 2-3 hours on the social media platform. You can choose an option where your friends on Facebook cannot see your active status online.

Open the Facebook Mobile App and select Menu in Tool bar. Go to Settings & Privacy section and scroll to Audience and Visibility. Choose Active Status and disable ‘Show when you are active’.
