The Facebook and Google Talk items in the account editor are used as
"redirects" to the XMPP protocol plugin and are not actually separate
protocols as far as Pidgin is concerned.  Selecting one will pre-fill
the account information with appropriate values for connecting, but the
end result will simply be a regular XMPP account.  There is not any way
to make Pidgin show the account differently and this is working as intended.
