Does anybody else also experience deterioration of Facebook's XMPP
service?  First, avatars and user names disappeared regularly and
temorarily from my roster, and now there is no group anymore for
Facebook contacts.  They all appear in the "no group" group.  Two
years ago, Facebook even translated Facebook groups to XMPP groups
-- they gave that up eventually.

I have the impresion that Facebook tries to freeze third party
client users out of the Facebook chat.  Probably because they cannot
display ads this way.

I also observe that Gajim suffers a lot more than Xabber.  What are
your experiences?
