For some reason I can't get Adium to connect to Facebook. Facebook refuses to log me in every time I try.

I have the right email address and the right password... but it keeps asking for password.

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 [email protected]. 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

On April 30th 2015, Facebook disabled Jabber support. There is currently no way to connect to Facebook's chat service from Adium. The developers are aware of the issue, and work is being done in Pidgin (whose protocol library Adium piggy-backs on) to make Facebook chat functional again.
