Is there a way to have FaceBook chat in Windows Live Messenger kind of like the way Digsby does it? Like, without making my friends get Windows Live accounts. Is this possible? I have the latest version and I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate.

For people that visit this question in the feature: Windows Live Messenger will natively support Facebook Chat with their upcoming Social Integration features. –  Tom Wijsman Sep 4 '10 at 14:52

MessengerDiscovery will do this.

It is a nice little free add-on for Live Messenger which lets you chat to your Facebook contacts.

ok, this seemed to work as expected, even though it used a lot of RAM and had so much errors. Thanks. –  David Feb 16 '10 at 19:39

Windows Live Messenger only supports Microsoft's proprietary chat protocol. You can use any chat client that supports the XMPP protocol (ie Digsby, Pidgin, GTalk, iChat) to chat on Facebook, however. See the Facebook page or this other post for instructions on how to configure your client.

WLM is only for WLM and Yahoo chat . Facebook is based on XMPP like gChat , iChat, AIM ... I'd recommend using Pidgin for chatting :) It's simple and it works on many protocols :)
