Yes sure, make the native FB client better than in N9 which did miss this feature. Group and Event chat functionality, please ;)

This request is for the IM system specifically, not for native FB client.

Ok, understood ;) Even if one could interact with FB groups / events with the SailfishOS IM system (and not with native client) it would be good improvement to jolla nessaging features..

Unfortunately, for Facebook in particular, this is out of our hands. They haven't implemented group chat support for their XMPP server (which is the only API they offer for accessing chat), so there's nothing we can do until that happens.

See http://stackoverflow.com/a/9809167/294661 and https://developers.facebook.com/docs/chat/

More generally, XMPP group instant messaging is something I'd like to do, and for real XMPP servers (including Google Talk - but not hangouts), that should be just a few middleware tweaks and the user interface implementation.
