How to use Facebook Chat with iChat – Mac OS X Hints

How to use Facebook Chat with iChat Apps
First, find your Facebook username by going to http://www.facebook.com/your_user/. Next, Open iChat, then select iChat » Preferences and click on the Accounts tab.

Click on the + (plus) sign to add a new account, with these settings:

  • Account Type is Jabber Account
  • Account name is your_user@chat.facebook.com, and enter your password
  • Click the drop-down arrow to reveal Server options. Enter chat.facebook.com as the server name.
  • Enter 5222 as the port and click Done.

Click Done again, and you are good to go.

If Facebook chat uses Jabber, I’d guess this works in any multi-protocol chat client.

Doesn’t support SSL though.
