The people hub is EXCELLENT! It notifies you with anyone's actions (upload photos, post on my timeline, tags, etc.), but it doesn't seen to notify me when I get a private message. Is there any way I can set it to do this?

Yes, I'm referring to the Facebook messages. But they don't come in my messages hub at all, and I have Facebook chat enabled :/
I can send messages through Facebook chat in people hub, but if someone sends me a private message (by clicking, "send a private message" on my wall instead of clicking my Facebook chat icon), then I won't get it on my phone.

Pretty sure the People hub wouldn't be the place for this, but I'm split on the underlying point. On one hand, integration as a concept is highly appealing. On the other, I think the current system highlights how hard it is. The problem is simple: text messaging, Messenger and Facebook chat are three different services that are likely used in several different ways by a single user. That makes the integrated approach a hard problem to solve – perhaps too hard?
My anecdote: as Facebook's messaging became integrated across chat+inbox a while ago, I use it primarily like email: if there's someone I'm perhaps not super-close to who I want to contact, I'll send them a Facebook message. Sometimes this will be for the intent of it ending up in their Facebook inbox, sometimes it will be when they are online on chat. As for Messenger / Skype, that's purely for instant messaging (especially with Skype's weird sync issues). Text messaging is for asynchronous communication with close friends.
Because of this, I rarely make use of any of the Messaging integration on Windows Phone. I want text messaging to have that priority that I personally put on it, and not have it flooded by the messages from other services that I use for different purposes and to varying degrees.

If you've used it before.... It will be a text just for the private messages I hope? And not include the chats?

One feature that must be added. I think we should get Facebook messages, online or not, pushed down to the texting app. I have this happen and resort to the mobile site as my conversation was happening with a person that was not online just on mobile. Got real old, real fast. This, plus re-sharing, and new tagging features need to roll out to wp8 so that facebook feels complete. I love chatting online with Facebook friends, but without getting the whole experience it feels lacking.
