Hi people, If you are wondering how to chat with your friends with Pidgin messenger using the (Jabber/XMPP protocol) on Facebook, here is how you do it:
Next, click on the Pidgin tab and you will be given your facebook chat login details as seen below:
“Go to “Accounts” and select “Manage accounts”.
On the Basic tab, enter the following info:
Password: Your Facebook Passowrd
Local alias: My Name
Click the Advanced tab, then enter the following information:
Connect port: 5222
Connect server: chat.facebook.com”
Go to the Pidgin messenger Accounts tab, click the Manage Accounts tab, then click the Add tab and choose the ‘Protocol:’Facebook XMMP. Complete the details as shown above.
If you are receiving the error:
Click the Modify Account tab in Pidgin messenger, then choose to Modify your Facebook account settings. In the Advance tab add the following:
Connect server: chat.facebook.com
Also when you log on to Facebook via your browser (through Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera or Internet Explorer) or through a Facebook application on your mobile phone, it’s better to be consistent with the way in which you log on to Facebook by using your user name instead of your email address that is associated with your Facebook account.
