The kind folks over at Facebook have now added a Jabber interface to Facebook Chat. To use the Jabber support in Adium you first need to create a Facebook username:
- Head over to facebook.com and login.
- Then click on the Account dropdown menu on the top right of the screen and choose Account Settings.
- You will then see an option to change your username.
- Choose a username and save it (this means your friends can view your profile using www.facebook.com/username (just like Twitter).
Now that you have your username, open up Adium and click:
File -> Add Account -> Jabber.
for the Jabber ID and your regular facebook password. Click OK and you should now be connected to Facebook chat.
