Regarded as a valuable means of building and maintaining relations among people generally humour is also considered as an inevitable feature of language used online. Not only is humour used for entertainment and relaxations but it is also one of the favourite practices for constructing solidarity and closeness among FB participants. Moreover, it reaches multi-functionality, expressing at the same time more than one meaning. What this paper aims to deal with is the engagement of males and females in humorous type of talk online. Humorous competence is to be analysed and explained as well as possible failures in achieving humour online.
