    Does anyone know why facebook isn't syncing with my Droid? When I go to contacts, accounts, it shows gmail syncing fine but on facebook I get an error saying that sync is expericing errors and will be back shortly. Been this way for over a month,anyone else having this problem. So sorry if this question has already been asked

    Unfortunately for everyone, it's because Facebook sucks ass and won't make a decent widget for Android. This might be unique to you, but rest assured that everyone has had issues with Facebook and their lack of support.

    I really didn't want to uninstall it because I will loose all my existing contacts then if it doesn't sync I will not be able to get them back. Is anyone else having this issue? Wandering if it is fb or my stupid droid

    The widget and the app itself work fine..

    when i go to setup, account&sync, and add account.. i touch facebook, it just goes back to the "general sync settings" menu.. i am stumped.

    How do I get the FB update? Nothing came to the phone telling me update found. I will try checking the market. Today I even signed out and back in to the stock fb app, the fb touch app and the bloo app. Still not syncing. Im lost.

    Just checked the market and 12 updates ready. Why is my droid not letting me know of updates to my apps?

    Installed the updates and still no luck. When I go to my contacts, open settings, click accounts, I have a red circle beside facebook. The gmail is green and syncing but not facebook. Then at the bottom it still says sync is experiencing problems. Humm, any more ideas?
