    Hi! New to this and to cool smartphones!

    I downloaded the Facebook app and it pulled in ALL of my 500 contacts. How do I download the app without all those contacts filtering in?

    You should be able to download the app in the market. If you already have it downloaded just open it and go into setting check the circle marked with something about exsisting contacts only.

    Word

    You go into the settings from the main facebook page of the app, not the web page.

    Go into your "contacts app" then at the top, it should say something like "Contacts: (name of network that you use) Google" and you can filter it all out that way

    I had this issue on mine. I had used the built in FB and it loaded all my friends into contacts. I just went in to the social networking and unistalled my FB info. Now I only have my phone contacts listed!

    I see how you can filter through different groups, but still not sure how to keep the facebook app but delete all my facebook contacts. Anyone have ideas?

    In facebook settings, you should have sync contacts. When you chose that you have the option to chose sync all/existing as well as the ability to remove facebook data

    I apologize, but I am not seeing this. Let me walk you through what I do and maybe you can help me.

    Open Facebook app
    Press "Menu" button
    Select "Settings"

    In here are the following options to choose from:

    Refresh interval
    Notifications
    Messages
    Pokes
    Friend requests
    Event invites
    Vibrate
    Phone LED
    Notification ringtone
    Helpful tips

    I dont see "sync contacts" anywhere... can someone point me in the right direction please

    lol. yea. first thing I did this morning when i bought the phone was check this out, and i can confirm that CURRENTLY, with the DROID X, the Facebook for Android app LACKS the settings for contact syncing. I came for the Droid 1, so I know what I was looking for.

    And even better, if you try to go in through accounts and access it, moto blur gets in the way.

    Thanks Motorola, im really enjoying the freedom to do what I want on Android.
