Its Finally Here! XMPP for Facebook

There’s just been a blog post by the Facebook developers to say that they’re finally allowing XMPP on Facebook. Here’s the details:

  1. Create a new XMPP account in your favourite XMPP client, eg Adium or Pidgin
  2. Use your Facebook username in the ‘username’ field. If you don’t have a username get one at
  3. Use ‘’ (without the quotes) in the ‘domain’ field
  4. Enter in your password
  5. Uncheck the Require SSL/TLS settings
  6. Check the ‘Allow plaintext auth over unencrypted streams’

You should be good to go 🙂
