    That would make sense, given that in my case some of the names remain. The question is what do we do about it?

    Hi,

     

    The Jabber Account you have (Possibly GoogleTalk ID or Facebook or other Jabber ID) will "read" the Buddy list you have from the Jabber server the Buddies are on (in this case Facebook).

     

    The Facebook server will be the place that is sending Numbers in place of IDs

    The iChat/Messages software is the bit that joins that up with your Address Book/Contact app and lists the persons "Real Name" in the Buddy list.

     

    If a Buddy is not in your Address Book (Contacts) then the Buddy list should show the Jabber ID (or AIM Screen Name or Yahoo ID).

     

    Technically this is a privacy issue as the numbers are more than likely the actual registration number that was generated when they registered and not designed to be public.

     

    People should be complaining to Facebook.

    I was hoping this would be taken care of quickly on Facebook's end but no such luck! Still having issues.

    HI,

     

    I would recommending finding a thread at Facebook that is already complaining about this or find a "Report an Issue" page at Facebook.

    still having the same problem.

     

    deleted all messages/ichat/jabber prefs and database file

     

    switched server settings to "automatic" and still getting usernames switching to numbers.

     

    anyone find a solution to this?

    Hi,

     

    I have been away for a few days and have seen nothing on the threads I have been catching up on since coming on line today.
