Following Facebook's closure of their desktop IM application, I've reluctantly moved to using Pidgin.
However it reports all my friends who are idle on mobile devices as "offline" which isn't very useful and not entirely accurate.
For example, the Facebook website reports that "Fred Bloggs" is idle for 38 minutes on mobile. On Pidgin, he's reported as "offline". If I send him a message, there is a reasonable chance he will respond.
As a result, I cannot hide offline contacts (because there are people in there on mobile I want to contact) and, even if I do show them, I have no idea which ones are genuinely offline and which ones are simply idle mobile users.
Is there any way I can fix this?
