Facebook Chat on Jabber

If you use Facebook and XMPP, rejoice. You can now get spammed via your favorite Jabber client: iChat, Pidgin, Adium, Psi, Finch, Meebo or any other that allows you to configure custom server (gtalk not included).

Federationing not supported.

Probably a fail for privacy, but a win for openness.

Instructions

Username: username@chat.facebook.com
Server: chat.facebook.com
Port: 5222
SSL: No
Allow plaintext authentication: No

Your username is your “vanity URL” suffix, for example firstlast in http://www.facebook.com/firstlast – so create this alias if you didn’t already.
