I don't always want my Oculus friends to know when I'm online.  Someones I want to be visible, sometimes I don't.

In most IM programs, for example, there's an "appear away" type of option (or even just "away"). I don't see anything like that in Oculus, is there a way to appear offline?

I don't want to block my friends obviously.

    Why do you want to appear offline? Just tell them your busy playing something or watching something, if it's a case of not wanting to be disturbed..

    That's not really the point.

    In the Oculus desktop app click on your name. A side panel will slide out from the right. Click on the little triple dots on the top right and you will see an option for either Appear Online or Appear Offline.

    Also, there's a little circle on the bottom left of your avatar image. Red means you look offline, green means online.
