Facebook is the biggest social website on the Earth so I think I don't need to waste my (and your's) time to talk more about what it is. I found today an interesting add-on for Pidgin which is still default (it will be replaced by Emphaty in the future) communicator in Ubuntu Linux.

The plugin is simply called pidgin-facebook and allows you talk with your friends using Pidgin front-end. It's absolutely more convenient than ordinary web-embed window, isn't it?

You can find pidgin-facebook in the default Ubuntu repositories ('sudo apt-gee install pidgin-facebook' - to install) or simply install it from Deb package which you can find here.

After installation process, you have to restart Pidgin and then just add new account. Remember to choose 'Facebook' in type. Fill the e-mail and password field and click 'save'. That's it, your new contacts should appear at the top of the list.
