    Hey everyone!
    The universal inbox (shipped app) has my facebook login information and I like that it keeps my contact list sync'd with my f/b account but when I get a f/b message, I'm notified twice. Once by the universal inbox and once by the f/b app. I know I can disable the f/b app notification but I prefer it to the screen I get with the universal inbox notification. Any suggestions as to how to disable the universal inbox's f/b message notification without removing the account thus disabling contact syncing?
    Thanks in advance!

    Well I've since flashed apex and now have the same problem again. My previous workaround isn't an option I don't think and I still can't find that setting in the facebook settings.

    (That's the bottom of the settings menu, all that isn't shown at the top is notification settings. I must be missing the contact list sync option somewhere...
