Why can’t my Yahoo Messenger contacts see that I am online?

Sean August 8, 2012

My status is set to available but my contacts can’t see that I am online. What can I do to make sure my status is “online” and that my friends can see me?

    maybe you or your friends who can't see you online ever blocked or ignored , and later didn't un-blocked later , once you both should check in your preferences

    There is no need to give yourself a headache. Either you're on line or not and if you are on line and they still can see you, there's only one option: your visiblity status. Make yourself visible to the other.

    Your YIM is set to "invisible"

    you might have set your settings to invisible which shows that you are online but no one else can see you. check your settings.

    Check your visiblity status: Messenger-My Status and make it Visible to the others

    Its possible you have added your friends to your friend list but they have not confirmed yours.
    Delete your friend from your friend list and add them again. Should work.

    try to update it and then restart your device (pc/notebook/tablet)

    I'm not exactly sure - that is a bit odd. Have you tried uninstalling and re-installing Yahoo Messenger?
