    Is anyone else having major troubles with facebook chat?

    The past week I have been having lots of troubles with facebook chat. When talking to people it keeps showing on their chat that I am signing offline then online and their messages don't always send to me. And when I send messages to them they often get duplicated or not sent at all or take a long time to send.

    Sometimes they appear to be offline but the messages will send still.

    I have tried facebook chat 3 different ways and it does the same thing every time. I have used IE8 at work, I have used Firefox on my computer, and I have used Trillian on my computer.


    I sent a bug report to facebook but I'm not sure how effective that will be...


    anyone else experiencing similar problems?

    I use Facebook chat through msn after I started getting issues with it. Best plan to use it through there as it's actually fairly stable!

    if you didn't have so many manly friends they wouldn't be signing on and off all the time. :D

    I have the same problems though. Whenever i try to talk to anyone it shows them signing off and then on about a hundred times. I just send messages now.

    @chimmy09, yeah thats what was happening to you and me the other day

    @jhanlon303, they were doing maintenance? when was that? because these problems only started in the past week or so.

    maybe the maintenance is profile specific like they have done with other upgrades. so maybe those of us who are having these problems havent had our profiles serviced yet?





    at first i only noticed this with my gf as thats primarily who i talk to and i thought it was because of her internet connection. but it kept getting worse and worse and then i talked to chimmy09 and a few other people on FB and they said it was happening too.

    then my gf said she was talking to one of our mutual friends and it wasn't happening between them, so i realized it was only me and not her.



    also, for those who are having this problem you should send in a 'Chat Disconnect' issue report.

    Facebook chat is terrible and always has been. I remember when everyone used MSN messenger and while it wasn't the best thing it was generally stable and quite reliable.

    I think I actually miss it! Unfortunately most the people I know just use FB chat. I stick to phone calls now!

    me and the gf have switched to mainly using skype now. I agree fb chat has never been that reliable, and with 500,000,000 users i guess its understandable. But the way it is right now is just rather ridiculous.

    Happening to me too. My friends keep going offline and online and I randomly go offline. Bear in mind most of my friends are on iPhones, iPod touches so that could be the problem. They need to stop changing things so soon.
