    I feel mildly like a dunce that I even have to ask this and I did try to search but obtained no results so here goes:

    I have contacts on my Droid that are also FB friends. However, since their names are not exactly the same, it is not auto updating their info with pics etc. How do I manually do this!? There has to be a way...right?

    First, go to your Contacts, then preferences/settings (I forget which) and click "show all contacts" under each e-mail address (one of them should be your Facebook logon). Then go through your contacts list, pick the name you want to get rid of, Edit Contact, and click "Join", then pick the name you want to keep in your phone.

    If you do it the other way around it picks the Facebook name, not the real name.

    And then, of course, uncheck "Show All Contacts" under your Facebook e-mail and it will hide all of those unnecessary contacts, haha.
