AceJohnny writes "More than a year and a half after announcing imminent XMPP support, Facebook has finally activated XMPP access to Facebook Chat. Long after Google has shown the way with Google Talk and Gmail integration, it looks like XMPP has gained mainstream acceptance as an open alternative to proprietary systems such as {MSN,Windows Live} Messenger and AIM."

Nice to see facebook taking this huge step away from their walled garden approach. The next logical step would be to support federation so folks don't actually need to have a facebook account to chat.

Submission Text Formatting Tips

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • b
  • i
  • p
  • br
  • a
  • ol
  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd
  • em
  • strong
  • tt
  • blockquote
  • div
  • quote
  • ecode

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:

<ecode>    while(1) { do_something(); } </ecode>
