Facebook chat directly from your N900
Do you hate to open your facebook site on your computer or even on the N900 just to chat with your friends, or just to see who is online? Sometimes I quickly want to chat or sent a message to a friend, who has f.e. no skype or other account but is registered in facebook as my friend.
Now I figured out, that means I found a possibility to connect to my facebook chat account with my N900 out of the box. And I love it. All my facebook contacts with their online status just like I am used to see the skype status.
And all you have to do, is just to create an Jabber account directly on your phone. No internetsite registration required. Nothing else.
Here is how to do it:
Goto your facebook site and sign in. Then open http://www.facebook.com/sitetour/chat.php and you will see several options for connecting to the facebook chat on the bottom of the site. Choose the other and a window will open, with your login data, shown as an email address.
Now goto the settings of your N900 and tap on the VOIP and Chat accounts. Select add new and choose Jabber from the list. Here you add the logins you’ve just got from your facebook site and confirm. That’s it!
You will now see all your facebook friends in your contacts even with their online modus. If there appears friends that you already have in your contact list, you can even merge them together.
Fact is, the implementation of the facebook chat straight in your contacts, is an enrichment of your social media connections. Just try it.
