Here’s a handy little tip to use iChat to chat on facebook, instead of Facebook Chat, which is notorious for unexpectedly quitting!
Step 1: Go into your iChat Preferences. Click the + button in the Accounts Tab.
Step 2: Select Jabber as the account type, and replace the “username” in [email protected] with your Facebook Username. Type in your Facebook password as well! In the Server Options section, enter “chat.Facebook.com in as the server name, and the port as 5222! Do not check either of the boxes that specify “Use SSL” or “Use Kerberos v5 for Auth.”. Leave them blank.
Step 3: That’s it!! Expecting more? Sorry, Macs are just too easy! Oh, wait, you do have to click Done…
