Facebook Chat Releases XMPP Support

Facebook Chat is a great way to talk with friends. Almost all of your friends are on Facebook, so it’s the easiest way. There has always been one annoying part to Facebook Chat, it is only¬†available¬†on Facebook.com. Today Facebook announced support for any IM application to include Facebook Chat.

To make this happen Facebook is using XMPP, a code that makes the whole chat thing work (confusing stuff). Today iChat, Pidgin, Adium, and Miranda have Facebook support. Of course more more services could add them, but this is today’s list.

Look for more services to add Facebook Chat.
