I can't take part in a Facebook group chat with Empathy.

Do you know if there is a solution for this issue?

It is not a problem of empathy, facebook does not provide API for group chat

Has there been any progress on this? – Michael Aquilina Apr 3 '14 at 16:11
Not as of right now. It can only be implemented if Facebook releases a public API for programs like Empathy to support group chat. As far as I know, Facebook has currently no plans to do so. – Gladen Apr 18 '14 at 14:26
