Hello Brian, or anyone else affected,

Accepted gwibber into precise-proposed. The package will build now and be available in a few hours. Please test and give feedback here. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you in advance!

Thanks pitti and ken. This fix works. The facebook names appear no matter whether or not the checkbox for "show real names in messages" is marked.

This bug was fixed in the package gwibber - 3.4.1-0ubuntu1

---------------
gwibber (3.4.1-0ubuntu1) precise-proposed; urgency=low

  * New stable release
    - fallback to displaying full sender's name if the nickname is empty, even
      if show-fullname is false (LP: #985801)
    - catch GLib.GError instead of GLib.Error, fixes crasher (LP: #940182)
    - Specify /usr/bin/python in gwibber-accounts instead of relying on
      env (LP: #988385)
    - lens: use category icons that match the rest of unity. This only affects
      the unity-lens-gwibber package in universe.
  * debian/patches/*.patch
    - dropped, merged upstream
  * debian/control
    - Added depends on gir1.2-wnck-3.0, gwibber-accounts needs it (LP: #957272)
