A little more info would be helpful to answer this. Can you give us any other details? –  Nathan Greenstein May 14 '11 at 20:21

Facebook updated its chat system, breaking Adium's support. You can still connect to Facebook but you need to setup the account as a Jabber account.

Your username will be Your_Facebook_Username@chat.facebook.com. The server is chat.facebook.com. The port is 5222 and you should not use SSL.

It's also worth linking to the official Facebook Chat page: facebook.com/sitetour/chat.php –  styfle May 15 '11 at 7:33
SSL is working fine for me. i've enabled "Require ssl" but not "old style ssl". –  Cosu May 15 '11 at 8:22
