    I don't believe markfive has any clue what you're talking about, I do and it'll always show the green online dot and not the phone icon (like you get with android, ios) no matter what status you set in the people hub or anywhere else.
    I've just tested this and the behaviour is as I describe it. If you set your status in Messages to busy then on FB your chat icon changes to the mobile one (it may take a moment or two to change). If you are not seeing this then another application is also setting your chat status - for example if I have the mobile icon (Messages chat status = busy) and then log into touch.facebook.com on my phone, my FB status goes to green if I use chat on touch.facebook.com - likewise my status goes green if I use FB chat (via www or FB messenger) on my PC.

    @markfive: I didn't connect skype to facebook on my pc have you done that? Skype+Facebook in the messaging app share the same status so it might be linked???
    Also your position is really interesting, as I had this "online" problem since the beginning, I have searched the web for a solution and you are the first person I see who has a solution...

    A couple of reasons why I stopped using Facebook. People have lost jobs and/or not gotten jobs because employers find them on Facebook. There was one employer that not only demanded the employees Facebook account but demanded the password .. I almost missed my grandson's birthday party because my daughter in law said "I posted the time and date on Facebook."
    I'm gonna be honest. If an employer asked for any of my social networking information such as passwords, I have no problem typing up my notice right then and there. And if an employer really feels the need to that, let there be transparency from everyone. Give me YOUR social network info as well.

    I quit Facebook a while ago. I have a phone. If someone wants to let me know something, they can call or text. I don't have a need to have to know what everyone is doing at every moment, and everyone else doesn't need to know my business. I don't have instagram either. If someone wants to share a pic, they can text it to me. There's no such thing as privacy anymore. Everything is impersonal and void of real human contact. Civilization wil pay dearly for social networking in the future. I used to think web forums were bad, but most are topical and aren't used to substitute real personal communication. I probably sound like an old scrooge to everyone...but seriously...stop and think about these things every so often. Eff a Facebook. Now I'll go hide until I'm done being hammered..lol

    I think on the flipside, there are alot of plusses to social networking as well. There are people in my life I'm still acquainted with who may not hold as much significance as they did before. We still share mutual friends and occasionally run into one another. But aren't gonna be chatting up each other everyday. I think Facebook allows you to keep those connections open when whether its logistics or just life doesn't.

    I don't have Skype connected to Facebook as yet. My Skype account is linked to my MS account.

    It's always frustrating when different people get different results testing the same thing.

    We really do need Facebook Messenger and notifications need improvement. The look doesn't bother me, I prefer it. Just needs some tweaking and basic features need adding.
    Why do you need Facebook Messenger? You can message any one of your FB contacts right from the Messages tile....even if the contact doesn't have a phone# attached.

    Different API calls. Basically the integrated Facebook chat one uses the inferior chat API, not the messenger API that will allow messages to sync up with the Facebook server. It's a bit like POP and IMAP.

    And that would be why when we have a conversation on the browser based chat, that I get the 1 sided conversation downloaded to my phone. I do like how if I have a conversation on Win8's messenger app, that I get that some thing sent to my phone (but not vice versa, which is weird...but what ev's.)

    I have suspected for a while that the WP8 Messages limitation is more to do with the MS FB application, as on the odd occasion I have found whole conversations downloaded to the phone. Which implies that there's something else going on. I'm hoping that when they finish the Messenger migration next week that we will suddenly find that all the MS properties use the FB messenger API.

    We (well I) can but hope

    I spent a few hours and checked almost every official document by Microsoft on the messaging app and the WP facebook integration: only Offline and Online affect the facebook chat. Same info according to the Facebook support.

    Also every review I found noted this and everybody on the Microsoft Answers forums, nokia forums, here and on some german WP websites I am reading.

    It looks like you (and some other guy on here, related to you??) are the only one on the internet who have the phone icon, thus I don't believe you. Your fanboyism must make you hallucinate a phone icon on FB.

    I followed your procedure, reinstalled and resetted everything on the phone, in my Microsoft account and on facebook, it is simply impossible.
    I also tested every messaging/chat app available in the store, every app can only display online or offline, none "on a mobile device"/busy.

    I get a phone icon as well. But....
    I use chat in my 920 along with Facebook messenger in my iPad which sets the phone icon in chat window for others. It doesn't change the phone icon if I'm not online in my iPad. If someone pings, I still get the message on my phone. So, I get the phone icon in a dubious way. :)
    I've seen this behavior with my sister name as well who uses an Lumia 800 + iPad.

    You're right though in saying that WP chat definitely does not set phone icon in chat by itself. But if you use a compatible device, your friends will see the phone icon and you'll get the pings in your phone.

    OK, so let me get this straight: the Facebook app automatically defaults status updates to be seen by only me...I have to manually change each status update so my friends can see it? Stupid. Check-ins do not allow me to change the default settings...therefore only people who I tag with me see the post? Stupid. I can use the Me tile to do check-ins and everybody can see it, yet I can't tag anybody with me? Again...stupid. What a cluster of a mess.

    So these issues are just the nature of the OS and there are no settings I can adjust to change things? Wow! Why would MS be so ignorant? These would be simple fixes and something that NEVER should be overlooked in the first place.

    For my me tile, it says right there choose who to see status - and it is defaulted to friends

    fb app says it will use my default settings from the web

    Go to Facebook and check your app settings for Windows Phone, you probably have the app set to just you. My status updates and check ins go to my friends.
