I observed on newly installed Ubuntu 13.04 that only Google plugin used in Empathy. Meanwhile I have some additional plugins:

  • ICQ. Contacts not shown in Empathy. Detail card in Network Accounts is empty so I draw a conclusion that problem with ICQ deeper.
  • Facebook. Contacts not shown in Empathy. Detail card in Network Accounts looks well.

What's up with these plugins?

I have exactly the same problem. There is a problem with the implementation of these plugins. The only way I managed to solve it was to uninstall Empathy and install Pidgin instead.

I agree with Rafael that this is a bug. Since a few people seem to have the problem and I couldn't find a bug report on launchpad, I created one. – André Stannek May 8 '13 at 7:28

Try sudo apt-get install account-plugin-icq.

This can resolve your trouble. But some problems still persists.
