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.

Try reading this article, and as you do, go through your Facebook page, explore the links and the drop down menus.

Let us know if you find it.

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.
