I see that pidgin supports facebook chat only for contacts connected via 
computer, not contacts connected via smartphone (the contacts that in 
the chat window in facebook website have the telephone icon instead of 
the green circle, just to be clear).
Indeed the chat is supported, i mean if one of those contacts send me a 
message i can see it displayed on pidgin but the problem is that until 
that contact don't send me a message i can't see that he/she is online 
neither send him/her a message.
So my question is: is it possible (or it will be possible) to see also 
contacts connected on facebook from smartphone in the pidgin buddy list?
