As the title says, iChat facebook contacts are always offline. Added it as  Jabber account as described by other people. The contacts come up all right but all of them are offline at all times. What could be the solution?

    It seems we have to wait on Facebook.


    Previously they added in some "security" which involved people having to allow "Unknown Browsers" which may have been about other apps logging in to Facebook.


    Prior to that there was a setting that could limit your Facebook contacts that could access you in their "chat".


    Facebook also have  history of changing settings with little notice.
