Facebook Chat with Pidgin

In a previous post, I wrote about how you can use Pidgin to replace Office Communicator (OCS). Now, I will show you how you can use Pidgin for Facebook chat, thereby making Pidgin a truly universal chat client!
  • Start the Pidgin client.
  • Add a new Account with the following details:
    • Protocol: XMPP
    • Username: yourfacebookusername
    • Domain: chat.facebook.com
    • Password: facebookpassword
    • On the Advanced tab, untick "Require SSL/TLS".
