    It has something to do with facebook. I am able to chat with people but they do not show up as available. Hopefully it will be solved soon.

    Just tried this as yesterday I noticed nobody was online; so just now I see 3 friends on the site, NONE on my phone. Great. Facebook blocked windows phone at the start in the people hub so you didn't get all the posts, and that was fixed it seems now this? If Facebook starts this on windows phone, which should be considered anti competitive but it won't be, then I will not stay on windows phone. I already live with limitations like not seeing messages come down unless I use the app(don't like it) or the website and then limitations in the people hub. So, lets hope this is a temporary thing as this is a big issue the Microsoft should not wait til blue: update all the social media experiences in windows phone to fix issues and just make it more complete.

    The same thing is happening to me and my wife. I'm hoping it's just a temporary issue. The reason that I think it might be is that the day that these problems started (Tuesday) is the exact same day that Windows Live Messenger was transitioned over to Skype. I'm assuming there's just some transition-related hiccups that will be sorted out.

    There you go, maybe this is the key. I bet the migration caused random accounts issues.

    Getting message "cant connect to chat" in the messaging app but Skype is showing my online messenger friends. Probably a problem due to the transition from Messenger to Skype.

    I remember this happening a few months ago, and it lasted like a week then sorted itself out.

    I'm not convinced it's related to the Skype/Messenger integration because I can't see any Facebook contacts online using IM+ either. It is likely coincidental that it happened on the same day.

    Well if it is related to the transition its very bad form on Microsoft's part to leave people with non working features and not bother making an announcement. A simple blog post would be enough instead of this silence.

    I agree as I am miffed (never use that word lol) that my Facebook chat is like others a NO word from Microsoft.

    Same problem here in Australia. Everything was working fine until yesterday and then it stopped. Same issue I can't see anyone online but my friends can see me.

    By the way last night when I went online on FB Messenger through the messages, I started getting all the previous Skype messages. Seems like some issues with the Transition probably.

    This has happened before, and it was fixed reasonably quickly. No need to panic quite yet.

    I'm having the same problem. Messaging on my WP8 keeps saying that no one is online. Same in my live.com and People in my Win8. This is sad.
    I'm beginning to think that I made a wrong choice in buying a WP8.

    It's happening to me on WP7. I'm thinking that MS's interface to Facebook is going haywire.

    To me it still looks like a problem on the facebook end, since other thirdparty websites/apps that connect to facebook seem to have the same problem (and point to facebook for a solution)

    Having the same problem here... By 3 days now...
    I tried everything and nothing....
    Same problem, also going on 3 days. Been in contacts with @Outlook and @MsftHelps on twitter and they say they are investigating but I havent heard an update.

    If everyone could do us a favor and report it under "messaging" at status.live.com that would be grreeaaattttt.

    thanks!
