How to use Facebook Chat with iChat
Authored by: clicli on Feb 13, '10 02:06:00AM

I managed to get iChat to work with my facebook account. However, it doesn't seem to work with my partner's account.

I get the following popup:

"chat.facebook.com Login

iChat can't log in to chat.facebook.com because your login ID or password is incorrect.

Login ID: <xxxx@chat.facebook.com>

Password: [blank]"

I type in the password, and still the window pops-up and iChat doesn't login.

There is no problem loging into the facebook site though.

Anyone else have this problem?

I add the same problem. I solved it by deleting the Jabber account I'd been trying to set up, and starting over again from facebook with this URL: http://www.facebook.com/sitetour/chat.php

After that, it worked without a hitch!
