Hey guys, first post here, but I've been lurking here since I got my lumia 920 (LOVING it)
I feel like I'm asking a question that's been asked a hundred times, but I can't figure it out... I'm looking to get facebook messages (NOT chat) to be pulled somewhere...people hub? me hub? messages hub? I can't figure it out though...this is the one thing I need to keep my facebook app hanging around for. I've tried signing into the chat thing in the messages hub, but I hate being logged into facebook all the time for chat. I don't want to chat..ever.
Anybody have suggestions? Thanks!

the facebook APP lets you go in to your facebook messages Inbox. The integration with the the 920 and facebook lets you use your Messages to chat (which by default, and there is no way to prevent this in Facebook) end up in your messages Inbox anyway.
so, I guess I am not understanding exactly what you want?

Yeah, got the same "problem". Only using the official FB App for missed messages and groups...
@congusano: he wanted to know if there is a way to read the missed messages without using the app (because of the facebook integration). So if you are not online on the chat, the messages you get at that moment will be saved as "messages". And to read them you have to use the app, or as seve said, m.facebook...

Anyone know if MSFT plans to further deepen the integration with FB? Like offline messages, groups, friend request, etc? I don't like using the FB app, I actually like the FB integration but it only half works since messages are quite important to me.

Facebook messages and chat are the same thing. The only reason they go to an inbox is if you are on not on facebook chat. Go look at your messages, all your chats are in there. Your messages should go to your Messages app on your phone if you are signed in. If not, you go to the Facebook app.
I think your invisible idea is the way to go.

In regards to facebook chat, the messages app misses half the messages I've received during an online chat too. I'll always end up having to refresh the facebook site during a chat because I know the built in messages app will miss a reply.
The sooner facebook release their facebook messenger app the better. This is probably the only thing I don't like after switching from Android as I never missed a single message using the facebook messenger app. I even received most messages before my laptop would get them through on the desktop site whilst the phone was locked on standby. Yeah, the facebook integration is pretty good when it works but more often than not, it doesn't.

I really like the idea of integrating all messages into one Messaging hub, but Microsoft's implementation of FB Chat has been hit and miss. Reliability is a key factor that's missing and I hope that they improve their reliability. I noticed that moving from Omnia 7 to Lumia 920, FB Messages that was sent when my phone was not connected to the internet does get through immediately after I connect to the internet.
That said however, there are certain occasions where when I was chatting with my friends, certain messages were not received or sent. It was really rare, occurring probably less than 1% of our conversation, but missing messages cannot be tolerated.
