When we get it in.. "fall", think we're going to get Facebook chat integration with Messages?

Doubt it. I donít see messages as increasing itís protocols. Especially given that Apple never talked about it on the iOS platform.

No you won't get it directly from Apple but you can do it using Jabber:

You can use facebook chat in iChat right now, so it's already there.

Except that iChat is going away and is being replaced in Mountain Lion. What is possible in iChat is irrelevant to iMessage. They are different programs

Do your research. iMessage is iChat with a partially new frontend. You can still have access to all the same iChat functions as before.

Huh... last I opened the program I didnít see any options for Jabber. I guess I was mistaken...
