Why am I appearing offline?

Whenever I start up steam, I am set to offline, and I need to go to friends -> online. This is not offline mode, I am still online and able to download game updates and browse the store etc, I'm just appearing offline to all my friends.

I have looked everywhere for a setting related to this and can't find anything.

Go to settings and check to see if you are set to automatically sign in or not.

Settings>Friends> check box to automatically sign in when steam starts.

Ah thank you. Quite strange that it's considered a seperate sign-in.
