Facebook connection issues

SOLVED

Community Manager Emeritus

Users who have linked their Skype and Facebook accounts are experiencing issues connecting with their Facebook contacts in Skype. These issues are the result of a change to the way Skype connects to the Facebook service.

 

We have included a fix in the latest version of Skype, which is now available on the Skype download page.

 

If you are still experiencing issues connecting to Facebook after downloading the latest version, let us know in the comments.

Please make sure you are using the latest version - currently 6.9.0.106. You can check your version in the menu "Help -> About". If you are running an older version please manually download and install the latest Skype version.

NB: The "Check for updates" features will not yet prompt for the 6.9 update.

Finally fixed! I had removed the Skype app from my FB account (FB contacts disappear from Skype), re-add the App on FB, then sign back into FB thru Skype. Everything good. Mark as solution if this helps you. :robotvery-happy:

 

Looks like per NormanM it was a FB issue, which is now resolved.

 

To remove app > FB home > Apps > more > Edit > Remove App

(wait for Skype to remove FB contacts)

 

To readd app > search for "skype" in FB > Go to App > a blank screen appears (normal)

 

Now in Skype > Contacts > Contact Lists > Facebook > Connect to Facebook > login > okay (3 times) > Connect to Facebook > DONE!

Hey, I'm using Skype 6.9.0.106 and I'm still getting the error "Your friend is now offline. They may not have received this meesage." even though they are online and they did receive the message. Also, I get the "Not delivered yet." icon next to the message.

 

So yeah, it hasn't been fixed yet.

The FaceBook connection was working fine yesterday. I just upgraded to the newest version of Skype(6.7.0.120) and it still won't connect to FaceBook. I haven't changed anything. I'm using Windows8 firewall, antivirus and antimalware.

Have you tried to update to the very latest 6.9.0.106 version?
