Why can’t I chat on Facebook?

When most people click a friend’s name to chat then usually a side bar appears to chat but it does not happen with me. When I click on a friends name, no side bar appears.
When I click on messages than too no message appears.

    it must be a compatibility issue, better disable all your extensions on chrome and clear your cache and cookies

    Let me know if this doesn't work

    Turn on your facebook chat or tell your friends not to block you.. If they block you you can't chat with them..

    When you are just on Facebook not chatting, does the lower right show a list of all your friends that are on at that time? Or is there just a bar in the lower right that just has a silhouette, a green dot, and the word "CHAT" on it?

    If you have the list, you should be able to click your friend there and chat. If its just the bar, click the bar and it will open the sidebar with all your friends names. Then you can click on one to chat. Hope this helps.

      If someone is using IE, that is the whole problem.
