I noticed that the option is missing from WP8. On my HTC Surround, as long as the user was linked to their fb account, it would say "text+chat" instead of just "text". That way you can choose to either text or send a fb msg in the txt inbox when responding or opening a contact to send a fresh message.
This phone only shows "text". I no longer get fb messages in my inbox combines with my text messages.
Did they remove this feature or am I missing something?

Ya, I did that but it's not working. I don't get any txt messages from my fb chats and when I click on "switch", it only gives me options for phone numbers to text. On top of that the contact profiles only say "text" and not "text+chat"....it's like the setting is on....but it has no effect.
All my fb contacts show up on my contacts and I linked them all to the the associated contacts as I did my old phone. So it should show *all* txt/msg options under each but it only shows phone numbers to txt.

Funny, I just found it and came back to respond when I saw your msg.
It appears that your status under the "me" hub defaults to offline when you first start using your WP8 device. I said to myself...I wonder if I turn that on, what would happen. *poof*....now everything is working. What a pain in the arse as that wasn't obvious at all. When enabling FB chat, it should pop up a notice asking if you want to make yourself available in order for it to work.
Thanks for jumping in with your comment because if I didn't find it myself, I would have found it as soon as I refreshed this page thanks to you :)
