The official Pidgin code has only ever supported these services via XMPP 
and I'm sure XMPP would never be withdrawn.  I would also have expected 
people to scream before now if XMPP support for these services had been 
broken.  Are you sure you weren't using third party plugin?

I suppose the Google and Facebook aliases for XMPP might have been 
removed, as they did cause confusion, in which case you will need to 
specify XMPP specifically.
