New Easy Facebook Chat On Any Chat Client without Plugins

I had written previously about How To Setup Facebook Chat On Empathy or Pidgin In Ubuntu 9.10, but now, thanks to Facebook developers, it has become easier than ever to chat with your Facebook friends on your stand alone instant messaging client.

You can now setup Facebook Chat using the XMPP/Jabber protocols as follows:

  • Select XMPP for the protocol type
  • Use your Facebook username (http://​facebook​.com/username/) for the username
  • Use your Facebook password for the password
  • Use chat​.facebook​.com for the domain

or

  • Select Jabber for the protocol type
  • Use username@​chat.​facebook.​com (http://​facebook​.com/username/) for the username
  • Use your Facebook password for the password

As always, feel free to comment or ask questions about any of the ideas shared in this post.
