Most of my contacts work 100%, but some seem to struggle.

When I choose "send message" to their facebook IM from People app, it just opens up a message to unknown person with the message type being "undefined" and sending won't do anything. However, when I open up a new message from Messages app, it works. Maybe. Some people just don't receive my messages and Facebook won't show them, but some people do. There seems to be no consistensy between these actions.

I was just about to make a post for the same issue. Have you found any other threads on this topic?

Reopened, as there still seems to be issues in the FB chat integration with some contacts

I can't get any sort of chat on facebook working at all, either through messages or contacts, but their facebook details are their on their contact card. :/

UPDATE: Actually I got facebook chat using XMPP working, I forgot to put '@chat.facebook.com' after my user name.

So the full thing is:

User: youruser@chat.facebook.com Password: yourpassword Server: chat.facebook.com port: 5222 (the default one)

Hope that helps someone. :)
