Facebook Chat will not login

Postby macguru » Wed May 27, 2015 5:51 pm

Starting today, my Adium will not log into Facebook chat.

When I open Adium, Facebook authorization window comes up requesting me to login to authorize. I enter my email and password, hit enter, the window disappears and then shortly (5 sec or less) it (Facebook authorization request window) reappears again. When I open Adium -> Preferences -> Accounts, the Facebook account indicates "Error: Not Authorized" but when I click on the "Edit" button for that account, it shows "Adium is authorized for Facebook Chat"

I also logged into Facebook and removed the authorization for Adium. The next launch it asked be to authorize, approved it and then the above cycle repeats.

I followed all the instructions in the Troubleshooting section with the same result every time.

HI Randall,

Facebook announced access to Facebook Chat for third-party apps would be deprecated on April 30, 2015. As of today, it seems they have started refusing Adium and other apps access.

Same thing happened to Trillian apparently, but they just released an update fixing it.

Any chance we will get FB chat back on Adium?

This should currently work, but probably won’t sometime in the near future:
1. Create an XMPP/Jabber account instead of a Facebook one.
2. Enter enter <username>@chat.facebook.com as username and your standard Facebook password.
3. Click "OK".

Other apps are connecting to FB fine, it's just Adium

Anyone have a suggestion for connecting to Facebook now? From what I can tell the XMPP method stopped working a while back (for me anyway)

Is there no solution to missing facebook chat?
Pidgin on Windows has solved the issue already with purple-facebook (on github from jgeboski), just tested and it works.
So it is fixable the protocol.

The solution has been for me to use the latest nightly build of Adium 1.6 - it's the only one that works with Google Talk and Facebook XMPP.

Indeedly!
I just installed the nighty 1.7hgr5893 from the night repo and with xabber (chat.facebook.com) it works :)
The names in the list are only numbers, but no matter. MouseOver shows the real names.
Thank!

Hello,
I have the same problem (OSX Yosemite), but even installing the nightly build Adium still cannot login on Facebook. Also another "pure" Jabber account I use, stopped working after installing the nightly (it did work fine with official 1.5).

Any more info on this issue?
Thank.

I believe Facebook has finally killed of their XMPP ("Jabber") interface.

Follow https://trac.adium.im/ticket/16921 for a replacement solution.

Yes, Adium with Facebook is not working anymore.
Maybe it stopped working same time as Xabber in Dec. 15 now forever.
By the way I noticed now, that this 1.7 alpha version is very old from 2014 and not the brandnew development version. So I guess that this worked in Nov. 15 was not related to the Adium version.

Good bye Adium, the Facebook Chat (with OTR) was my only use for it.

Trillian for Mac still seems to work with Facebook...
