Windows Live Essentials 2011 beta 2 is now released, and with this update, Live Messenger let people chat with Facebook friends. The interface is same as a regular instant message, so this will feel right at home. And, also allows you to view status updates on Facebook and MySpace all from the main window. Note; Microsoft Facebook chat is currently available in US, UK, France, Germany, Russia, and Brazil.
To set up Facebook chat: If you already connected Facebook to WLM, you'll have to click on Facebook icon on your contact list to edit the connection, and then make sure you place a check by the chat option. Click Connect with Facebook and it should update your contact list momentarily.
