    I know the general consensus is the Facebook app sucks and I agree but it's doing something that i dont think is normal. After installed it makes a entry int he contact folder of my droid for ever friend i have on face book. I do not want this. If this is a feature how do i turn it off?

    There is a setting for it to sync only with contacts in your phone book.

    yea thats what i was referring to its sync with EXISTING contacts

    just have to have the name in contacts the same as they have on fbook (good luck with those tools who think having their middle name on fbook is cool)
