I think that is the third party facebook plugin.  Facebook can also be 
accessed using XMPP.

The project page for the third party plugin is: 
<https://code.google.com/p/pidgin-facebookchat/>.  The code doesn't seem 
to have been touched in almost three years.

There appears to a page about XMPP access at 
<https://www.facebook.com/ajax/sitetour/chat.php?jabber_client=1>, but 
you already need to have sold your soul to Facebook to be able to read it.
