    I and a lot of others seem to be using Meebo IM, it will let you facebook chat. (free in marketplace)

    Well there has been several references to the problems with Facebook. With the head of the apple team quitting the facebook app. perhaps he is looking into a more open source place to build one...

    Go to the 'marketplace' app on your Droid and search for 'meebo im'. It should come up and just click to install. After it installs just find it and click on it and press 'add accounts' and just put in your facebook login. Make sure that you are online for chats on your computer and then your online facebook contacts will show up on Meebo.

    Facebook chat also works on your browser, albeit a little screwy. When you're viewing the m.facebook page/x.facebook page, scroll to the bottom and click 'full site', that takes you to main FB page. Scroll on down, you'll see chat ready to use.

    Zooming in throws it off a bit.

    In fact, I'm FB chatting with two people right now on my phone with what I explained above.

    +1 to this if you use FB chat - its also a good replacement FB app

    Not really.. Bloo is missing way too much and has way too many bugs and quirks. It's a good supplement though for chat and notifications.
