Facebook have a separate app these days called Facebook Messenger, this has both Facebook's chat and inbox features in it. Why they've split it out into a separate app now, I don't know, but this should give you what you're after:

Facebook Messenger is a faster way to send mobile messages to friends. With Messenger, you can send and receive messages with any of your friends around the world or anyone in your mobile contacts list. Messenger is available on iPhone, Android, and Blackberry.

Messenger lets you:

  • Send messages instantly to other friends who have Messenger
  • Chat with friends who are on Facebook
  • Get free push notifications for incoming messages
