According to the HP notes at: http://www.facebook.com/#!/apps/application.php?id=4620273157&sk=app_7146470109
Facebook chat support was expected in webOS 2.x...obviously this is still missing...
Are there any updates as to when we will see this?
also in terms of the facebook app, there are several bugs including comments showing 'anonymous user' for most names.
Also on the 'news' screen, the dropdown list that shows 'news feed, status update, etc' has several blank options...?
Has this app been dropped, or will it continue to be supported for WebOS 2.x???
Thanks!
Post relates to: HP Pre 3 (Unlocked EU)

Facebook chat is something a lot of people would like to see, but unfortunately it's just not there yet. The webOS Facebook app hasn't been updated in a while so that's probably why you're seeing the "Anonymous user" posts (I see them too on my Pre 3).
Note, the following content is simply my opinion and should not be taken as fact or as a forward looking statement. Only read it if you understand that is simply an opinion.

As to when it'll be updated, who knows. HP is still actively developing webOS but with them switching to an open source model, it might put a hamper/stop to the webOS Facebook app. The reason being that the Facebook API is subject to a user agreement and I don't believe that agreement includes distrobution of source. That would mean that HP would either have to do a closed source app or none at all. And to be honest, I think they are focusing more on the OS then the apps right now. Anyway, that's just my 2 cents.
