You realize that this involves a chat server that all clients would access, yes?

OK; but you still need a chat server. Or where you planning on using Facebook chat? I don't know if there's a library that you can use to embed it into your own apps; I rather doubt that.

We can use the facebook login screen , after login i want to load my online friends to my custom list.
In that list I click a particular user means the chat window will be open
That is my requirement

You seem to be completely focused on the client side. But chat doesn't happen between two phones - there's a server sitting in between. Have you had any thoughts on that?

This is the 3rd time you mention the user list, but that is trivial, probably no more than 10 lines of code. But you haven't given any sign that you understand how chat works - do you know what the function of the server is? Since you state that you'll be using Facebook's server - do you have any indication that a 3rd party app like yours has a means of accessing their chat server?

Facebook has a developer site that explains all the ways in which you can access their site programmatically.

That could explain your problem, contact the facebook's developer, but you can still get the users list that you mean, you will have to examine the backend of the page in the client side, how the data works in there.
