Facebook Messenger ?

What does it mean when I open a contact name ,their name at the top is sometimes bold and sometimes not. Does it mean they have muted me but are currently active? I have tried to have this question answered but no one seems to know. This only appears on my iPad but not on my iPhone.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

First a good advice to you:

Do yourself a favor and stop doing that. It will make you sick to watch people on messenger if they are online, active and you want them to respond. It will destroy you emotionaly. Trust me. I have had experience like this and you roll in to that. It is the real poison of social media.

It does not mean they have muted you. They probably temporarly deactivated their account.
Some people do this to make shure they are not interupted by messenger at work.

It can also mean they have blocked you. If so. they are not worth your love!!! Deal with it. Don't try to find out why.

Kind regards.
