    Also check whether any scripts or addons are not blocking the Facebook elements from loading properly.You can do this by disabling all extensions and restarting your browser.

    Note :- Online friends on left side bar will be visible only if someone is online and friends using Facebook via mobile will be visible too irrespective of whether they are online or not.

    if you are using chrome, just get the side bar disabler extension. works like a charm.. :)
