    I am chatting with my friend in the on Facebook, and she said "I have some work right now. I have to go". I want to say that "don't mention it" [No. That doesn't work for your context.] or "let be like home" [That means nothing in English. Note that "feel at home" also doesn't work in the above context.] or "feel free" [That's possible.] or something like that but I don't how what Americans might say said in this case.
    Let's see how our AmE speakers answer your question.

    Okay - talk to you later.
    Okay - good chatting with you.
    All right. See you around.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Yup. All good. Here are more examples of conversational American Engish:

    - No problem. Let's talk later.
    - Okay, go ahead. I'll call you later.
    - Sure, I'll let you go. Maybe we can catch up with each other next week.
    - Yeah, that's fine. I'll get back to you tomorrow.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
