What do the grey F and blue squiggle mean on Facebook Messenger?

Ok, question about the newly installed Facebook Messenger! :p
What do the grey F and blue squiggle mean?
I thought maybe "online" and "offline" but nope, that'd make too much sense ;)

I'm wondering the same thing. At first I thought the blue squiggly meant the person was online. But now I wonder if it means the person has switched to the new messenger system and the gray Fs are people who haven's switched yet?

I don't use FB, but a colleague who does reckons the grey icon means the person doesn't use messenger, the f + flash icon means they do.... Hey, it only took 3 months to clear this up. Maybe. :D

I think the f is when they sent you a message first and the squiggly means you sent them a message first

I have facebook messenger but for some reason if I go into the people tab and then to the active tab, my user shows the f and not the blue squiggly. Anyone know how to fix this?
