I've noticed in the last few days that Facebook has made some sort of backend changes and now recognizes WP's built in chat the same way it does the messenger apps on ios and android. From the website, my friends with windows phones (both 7 and 8) now show the little mobile icon instead of simply always being online. When I got my 8X the other day it also now says "[friend] is on mobile" in the message thread. I don't know if that's an 8 specific thing or if they just happened to flip the switch on it the same day as I upgraded so it may work on 7 as well.

Can't say if that's just an 8 thing or general WP thing now, but i noticed that too last week. Also if i've been chatting on my laptop, then switch to my phone, the IMs received side updates with everything in that conversation. If i'm on the facebook tab and actively using it, it doesn't send IMs to my phone. But if the focus is on another tab or window, it'll send the IM to my phone.
Cool stuff that should've been done a long time ago.

Exactly same issue for me - Lumia 800.
Also created another fb account to test what my chat status shows when I'm logged in to fb, constantly on the green dot... It won't show the mobile icon and people think you are lurking on fb 24/7 - not good, also it is probably perceived that you have a rubbish phone that can't run fb chat as it looks like you are permanently signed in on a PC and not a mobile app.
I think I have installed/tested every IM app for fb and they all have this issue... Any ideas???
This is by far my biggest bug bear of WP7.5, with a lack of Flash Player a close second.
