    Hey everyone...

    Did a quick google search and didn't find anything. I was wondering if anyone else is having issues syncing Facebook Photos with contact pictures? How does one do this (maybe it's just Motoblur in general)? I've gone to account settings and didn't see anything there, and the Facebook application didn't show anything either.

    Any tips/help is appreciated :)

    somebody else mentioned earlier that Facebook contacts were taking a while to sync up.
    I wont have my Bionic until tomorrow so I cant say for sure if this is the case but I'd give it a bit of time and see what happens.

    I saw someone earlier had mentioned this problem in the "I got my bionic" thread. They then posted later that the pictures had shown up after some time had passed.

    My phone is now 3.5 hours active and I noticed that I finally have FB pics in my contact list. Took awhile, as stated above.

    I think they are talking about me. I'm glad yours came in too. It took awhile for mine to sync. I was happy when they finally came in. I decided to do some work at work and leave my phone alone for a bit. I suggest others do this as well :) Once you do your job for a bit, the phone pictures will populate.

    Kind of on the same topic but did you use the Facebook integration on the phone, or from the actual Facebook app?

    When I setup my FB account using the FB integration on the phone, the dang thing imported ALL of my FB contacts, which I didn't want.

    Ideally, I just want it to sync to the contacts I had already put into the phone. :(

    I had that problem too. It annoyed me to no end. To turn it off, go to the contacts screen and click the "menu" button, then "Display options". There you can scroll down and see the Facebook account. I just unclicked the "All Contacts" check box there and it got rid of all Facebook contacts who weren't in my phone address book.

    Would someone please tell me how to explicitly link a contact (from gmail) with a Facebook contact? I haven't been able to figure out how to do that for the times when the contact name in gmail doesn't match the contact name in Facebook (when the names match, everything happens automatically).

    Thanks in advance.

    UPDATE: Nevermind. I figured it out. First click to edit the contact. Then use the Menu and choose "Join" which will let you pick the Facebook contact, assuming you are displaying them.

    I'm having the exact opposite!!

    I want to sync all of my Facebook contacts to my Bionic. I have tried using the Motoblur Facebook and the downloaded market Facebook, both with no luck. deleting the market app completely from the phone before trying the onboard one. Cant get anything from FaceBook to sync. Finally used SyncMyPics to get the Facebook pics for my current contacts on the phone (all from Google contacts). On my OG droid, with I clicked on the pic for a contact it would include a icon link for their FaceBook account...not on the Bionic. Some folks are complaining about everything sycning...whereas I have nothing syncing from Facebook. (yes I've made sure all contacts was selecting under the display option, under facebook).....So whats up?

    So there is no longer a connection between android and facebook? This is hard to believe! I cant see this happening for very long or android and facebook will have some very ticked off users such as myself!:mad:

    When I got my Bionic, I had to go under the privacy settings in Facebook and allow the app "Droid" to have access to my Facebook account before it would sync. Once I did that though, it has worked perfectly.

    Is Droid listed as an allowed app on your Facebook settings? Make sure you have check marked the info you want to share. I had to do mine from my home computer, it wouldn't let me do it all from my phone.
