    This seems to me not work very well.
    The problem is this "put them in a folder". I notice that group changes for a contact not work, FB overwrite this settings with the groups from the FB website when jabber connection starts. You must first create a FB group and move the contacts on the FB website into this group.

    Another problem with this groups is that you can assign more than one group to a contact, but in the chat you have only one group per contact.

    hmmh, I notice contacts in the root group only if they have no group in Facebook.

    (btw, I notice some contacts without names only numbers in the FB groups, and one jabber contact with the name of an existing miranda group in the root, notice someone the last issue too?)

    For now, the only permanent way is to add them to a list on Facebook.

    If I'm already using Jabber for GMail, can I also use it for Facebook?

    Any way to make a Jabber protocol clone with just the Facebook icon?

    You just create a new account in the Account Manager. You can then set protocol specific icons for that account in the options.

    add to facebook's friend list, and modify list name, like:

    facebook
    facebook\group1
    facebook\group2
    facebook\group2\subgroup1
    facebook\group2\subgroup2

    I think this is normal if you have tons of Facebook contacts.

    Maybe you've testing your Facebook-Jabber account without previously disabling the Facebook (non Jabber) Miranda protocol. This way it would be normal to see the Facebook contacts duplicated in your contact list, as they're retrieved by different protocol plugins.

    I really find this annoying. If I move my contacts to reorganize them in my contacts list, they're moved to Facebook-name groups again every time I login. I've searched for an option in the Jabber account advanced configuration to avoid this behaviour, but I didn't find any.

    Is it really necessary to change the Facebook group names to meet the Miranda contact list names if you want to keep contacts organized as any other protocol contacts? This disturbs me a bit, as my Miranda contact list groups are nested (thus, they contain the special character "\").

    EDIT: This was already answered in the previous message while I typed my question. And I'm afraid the answer is "yes", at this moment.

    That's correct, only chat. Not bad, for an IM client.

    By the way, Lancaster already provided Facebook status icons and smileys for the Facebook protocol that also work flawlessy for a Facebook Jabber account:

    Thanks a lot for that.
