    So I went into my camera the other day and all of my Facebook pictures synced to the camera and I did not want that to happen. So now my question is is there a way to delete all the Facebook photos because I am not seeing a way of doing it. I have since unchecked the box in the camera settings that caused the pictures to sync but the ones that did before I unchecked the box are still there and it is very annoying having them all there. How this is clear. Thanks for any help in advance.

    If you've unchecked the option to have them synced, you should be able to force stop / clear data (settings > app manager > all > gallery) in the gallery app to force it to rescan and start from scratch, basically. Then the FB pics should be gone out of your gallery. I haven't dealt with that with Facebook specifically, but I know I've done that with Picasa when I didn't want the gallery to show all of my Picasa galleries online, so hopefully that should work.

    Well, I thought that had worked but now instead of having every single different album from Facebook in the it is still downloading them but just into one big Facebook album in the gallery... I have everything disabled so that it says sync disabled I have the sync when on wifi turned off... But they are still showing up... Very frustrating.

    Had something similar . In the main screen where it shows the albums I was able to hit the menu button and under content to display I un-checked Facebook.

    There might be a setting within Facebook itself. Gotta go afk for a sec though...
