What does a half green circle in facebook messenger mean?

Asked by AshlynM (10064points) April 17th, 2018

Been seeing this symbol for the past several days recently. I’ve never seen it before.
I believe a full green circle means they’re active, but not sure what a half green circle means. It’s a green circle with only half filled in.

Have you tried clicking on it? Maybe it’s a message about the data breach. I haven’t seen that on mine.

A half blue circle used to mean they were idle so maybe they changed it from being blue to green?

I just looked at my Messenger and saw that some people had half green circles next to them with a time, i.e. 2 min, in it. So that is showing how recently they were active. The most recently active are in a top group with those currently active and there is a second section below with those who were active a longer time ago such as 20 min.
