-=== How do I configure my Facebook Chat account? ===
-If you have set up a Facebook username, your Facebook username is your account username, and {{{chat.facebook.com}}} is the domain.  If you have not, things may be more complicated.  Fortunately, Facebook has a page which gives you all the information you need!
-Make sure you are logged into Facebook, and then load this URL: http://www.facebook.com/sitetour/chat.php
-Click the "Pidgin" link, and you will be presented with step-by-step instructions, with your Facebook username identified.
-=== Why do I get a 'Not Authorized' error when connecting to Facebook chat? ===
-Make sure you're using your Facebook username (and not your email address) in the 'username' field.
-If you have only recently created a Facebook username through https://www.facebook.com/username then you may need to log out of the Facebook website and log back in again.
-Otherwise, 10 times out of 10 you've entered the wrong password.  Seriously.  Try it again.
-=== Why can I not move my buddies out of the 'Facebook Buddies' group? ===
-This is a new 'feature' of Facebook chat.  XMPP groups can be controlled by the XMPP server so any changes you make can be overridden.
-=== Why can't Pidgin seem to send Facebook messages? ===
-If you have configured Pidgin as instructed above, and Pidgin connects successfully but only appears capable of receiving Facebook messages, it is most likely because you (and/or your facebook friends) have disabled Facebook Apps.
-To re-enable Apps, first click the arrow dropdown in the top-right of Facbook, then click "Privacy Settings". Click on "Edit Settings" next to "Apps and Websites". Next to "Apps you use" ensure that you turn on apps. Pidgin should now be able to send Facebook messages.
-If you are concerned about your privacy due to others accessing your information via apps, on the same page you can click "Edit Settings" next to "How people bring your info to apps they use" and un-check all the boxes in that popup menu (leaving the "If I'm online" checked may be a good idea).
-Further, again on that same page, you can click on "Edit Settings" next to "Instant personalization", click "Close" to remove the video popup distraction, then finally uncheck the box marked "Enable instant personalization on partner websites."
