Facebook Chat is broken (March 2012)

Facebook Chat is working for me, but it isn't working for others. Facebook has confirmed that it is aware of the issue and is working on fixing it. Is Facebook Chat working for you?

Some Facebook users have been experiencing issues with Facebook Chat, according to the service's Community Forum. The error is "Facebook Chat is currently unavailable.." It started showing up on Friday for some, while others only started seeing it on Monday (today). It's not clear how many user are affected.

"Some people are reporting they're experiencing difficulties sending messages," a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement. "We're aware of this issue and working on solving it as soon as possible. We're sorry for any inconvenience!"

I have contacted Facebook about this issue and will update you if I learn more.
