I am using a XMPP client to connect to facebook (Apple Messages), and I find that not all messages make it to my client. Many get lost on the way.

Am I the only one with this experience? Is there a way to improve? Who's to blame?

When this happens, are you using the client exclusively, or are you replying in the Facebook web interface? – grawity Feb 22 '12 at 15:21
sometimes it could be that facebook is open yes, or the facebook mobile app. – nute Feb 22 '12 at 16:02

This appears to be a problem with XMPP in general. See e.g. here or here. There are suggestions that this might occur because you've set to disallow all apps in your facebook privacy settings.

Rather a problem with Facebooks XMPP implementation. – Zash Feb 28 '12 at 0:58
