      • Dear Sir,

        Thank you for wanting to help me. This problem has been occuring since the past 3 weeks or so and to my knowledge is faced by many out there. Upon logging to facebook, it momentarily connects to the chat but then immediately disconnects, giving an error “Unable to connect to chat. Try again.”

        Despite trying again, it doesn’t connect. I have no inkling as to why is this happening and would be grateful to you, if you can help me find a solution. I have tried using different browsers as well.
