Facebook Chat Now Everywhere You Are
In an attempt to make it even easier to waste time and chat with your Facebook friends no matter what other stuff you have going on at any given time, Facebook has now made it possible to integrate Facebook Chat with your regular instant messenger client.
Announced today on the Facebook blog, the new system uses Jabber (XMPP) technology to reach past their site and into instant messaging software that includes iChat, Pidgin, AOL chat and more. Now your ex-girl(or boy)friend can give a 2 AM one-handed holla whether you're logged in to FB or not.
Thankfully, they've made it possible to specifiy which Facebook friends lists have access to you through the new linkup.
