No contacts online on my facebook acount

Asked by Jose Vega

I'm connected to Facebook, but there are no contacts online. Some times appears a contact that is getting offline and then it goes to no contacts again. I currently have 13 contacts online base on the web page.

Never used that. Is that another software?

I'm actually getting the same thing currently, occasionally a contact will appear in Empathy's list, but it seems temporary and doesn't reflect the number of contacts online (as seen on the facebook web page). Contacts can also appear offline when they aren't.

It was working ok up until the last couple of days (at most). Perhaps facebook has changed something?

This happens to me too. Only one or two online contacs are visible in the empathy contacts dialog. Also pidgin has the same problem. Empathy package version:

EDIT:
Doesn't happen on Pidgin. On the time of checking no one was online. Sorry

I am having the same issue with Empathy 3.6.4 on Ubuntu 13.04. Contacts appear briefly in Empathy and then disappear. Pidgin seems to work fine.
