It is in the FAQ.  Regular participants in this list should probably
keep themselves familiar with the FAQ, and/or follow development on
our IRC or XMPP development and support chats.  We have supported
Facebook through XMPP since the day Facebook opened access, and it's
been a FAQ entry since shortly thereafter.
