Get System-Wide Facebook Chat Heads in iOS – How to
Facebook Chat Heads were launched last year introducing a really helpful feature to chat with your friends while within your Facebook feed. The Facebook Chat Heads implemented on Android are system wide - you have them everywhere until you close it. However, on iOS, they are only available on Facebook feed and the Paper app. Here is, however, how you can enable system wide Facebook chat heads in iOS.

Thanks to Adam Bell, system wide availability of Facebook chat heads became possible last year with a jailbreak tweak titled MessageBox. The jailbreak tweak, however, did not work with the latest iOS 7 until now. Adam Bell has released the latest version of MessageBox iOS 7 which extracts the Facebook Chat Heads code from FB app and run it system wide.

MessageBox is a useful small tool if you use Facebook chat quite often as it would no more demand you to first switch to Facebook app to respond to the chat messages.
To install MessageBox iOS 7 v2.0, you need to have Facebook Paper installed on your jailbroken iOS 7 device. Install Facebook Paper, and also install the MessageBox iOS 7 jailbreak tweak. Once done, open Paper app and wait it to load. Press Home Button and you will see the same ol' circular chat heads on your home screen.
MessageBox iOS 7 jailbreak tweak is available on Cydia in BigBoss repo.
