    How do I get photos for contacts from Facebook...

    ...without having the Droid add every single one of my 3,000 Facebook contacts to my contacts list. These are not my "contacts".

    I'm coming from a Blackberry where by installing the Facebook app...accounts linked, but the Blackberry did not automatically add 3,000 contacts to my carefully pruned contact list.

    Same with Twitter. I added that and another 500 contacts came in. Is there any way to add those services without adding to my contacts list?

    I don't use facebook but I am synced to Twitter. I notice I don't see any of my twitter contacts on m Droid, but I believe that's because I have it set to only allow contacts with phone numbers to appear.

    I'm sure the X has this someplace but I don't know where it is. Search around in your settings and see if you can find it, it would be in the contact settings. That should help.

    Sounds good to me. If I have that option I don't know about it, again I don't do facebook.

    As far as I can tell that option is nowhere to be found on the settings of the Facebook app.

    I don't think that's the problem. I added Facebook and Twitter to the Motorola "Social Networking" app and that imported every contact ever. If I remove Facebook and Twitter the contacts disappear and I'm left with my original list, but I'd still like to have images update with Facebook.

    I also like having the Moto thing because as far as I can tell it's the only Android app that lets you post to Twitter and Facebook simultaneously.

    Try to access it under the "accounts & sync" in settings

    If not maybe its something that Blur changed for the Droids now.....

    Under settings/accounts if you hit menu there is an option for picture source. But the only option is Facebook.

    Sometimes a "smartphone" is only as smart as its user.

    i believe blur changed things from the original droid. what used to be "accounts and sync" is now just accounts, and the sync options are not there anymore. I still haven't figured out where they went to

    This is one of my biggest gripes with my X actually, I don't want ALL of my Facebook contacts showing up, I want it to sync the Facebook data only with existing contacts, the option existed on my Droid, but they removed it on the X, I even tried downloading the actual Android Facebook app (vs moto's preinstalled) and the option was missing there too
