    On my old OG Droid - I was able to sync my facebook account under "Accounts" and it would sync my contacts and their profile photo with their name.. well when I try to add my Facebook account on my GNexus - it doesnt do anything after I click "Facebook" on the add account screen.. I have been able to add my Google, and Twitter accounts, but facebook doesnt do anything...

    anyone else?


    and yes, I have the facebook app installed.

    It's not built into ics. You can use friendcaster or haxsync as a workaround. If you search the forums or google there's plenty of info on this topic and why it is.

    the only thing with all the workarounds is that none of them will sync the facebook phonebook so you can't get any of their phone numbers unless they are already a google contact, which makes the workarounds useless, IMHO.

    I don't think its useless. Most people just want to sync their contact pictures. Anyone that I want to talk to on fb I already have their number. The fb phone book is completely useless to me. If I didnt get someones number in person I don't want it. But that's just me personally. It all just depends on how you interact with your friends.

    So far haxsyc seems to be the best option though. The picture quality is better and its been getting updated frequently to add more options. I wouldn't be surprised if an upcoming update had the fb phone book in it, if it doesn't already (haven't checked the changelog in a bit)

    how come its an option in my Account's screen then?

    will give it a try, I installed FriendsSync but its useless.. i dont see what difference it has made at all

    update: ugh, is there a free option? i know its only .99 but something free is always better :) imo

    friendcaster is free, but the resolution on the pictures will be lower than with haxsync

    I have been using friendcaster but am wondering if there is a more "lite weight" option (without rooting and without paying lol)
