Yes, WhatsApp and Facebook are my two most favorite means to keep in touch with my buddies, but there is one thing in common between these services which I hate, and probably all of the users hate.
And the feature which I have been talking about is that it lets the other person (recipient ) know if the message has been read or not. And the face that Facebook lets the other person know about the time at which the message was read makes it more complicated.
If you calculate this feature from all the angles, then you would realize that this particular feature would hurt a good number of users who don’t prefer the recipient to know when the message was read.
I found few tips on Lifehacker which would let you disable this feature. Yes, you can disable SEEN AT feature of Facebook messages. Here are some of the ways.

This is surely THE SIMPLEST way to avoid SEEN AT and IS TYPING captions while chatting on Facebook. All you need to do is download and install the Chrome extension, Facebook Chat Privacy and get going with Facebook messages.
