Solution : Facebook Authentication Problem in Digsby

For those of you who use Digsby, you may have noticed that both Facebook chat and Facebook notifications fail to authenticate and disconnect quite often. What I'm about to tell you isn't a fix for the actual Facebook chat implementation in Digsby, but it does fix Facebook Chat by letting you access it via the Jabber protocol

Here's the trick :

1) Start Digsby

2) Click on the "Digsby" menu (on the top left of the buddy list)

3) Select "My Accounts"

4) In the "My Accounts" section, click on the icon that looks like a brown light bulb [check the screenshot]


5) Enter the following information :

  • Jabber ID : username@chat.facebook.com

    The "username" is the name in your Facebook address. For example. If your Facebook profile address is www.facebook.com/techmeasy, then type techmeasy@chat.facebook.com in "Jabber ID" field.
    ..
    If you don't already have a username for your Facebook account you can obtain one from the following address. https://www.facebook.com/username/
    ..
  • Password : <your facebook password>

    6) click the Save button.

    That's it. Your Facebook friends should now be showing in Digsby. Also go back to your Digsby "My Account" box, click on the Facebook icon and uncheck the "chat" label to prevent your Facebook friends to show up twice in your buddy list.
