This thread has been super helpful but I am not friends with myself on facebook so when I try to sync my contact info it won't pick up my facebook profile. Does anyone have any suggestions?
I don't have facebook anymore, but I think I remember having my facebook picture show up in my contacts. I have a Google contact of myself. Do you have a Google contact of yourself (with your name and email address)?
I was wondering if there was any way to have my facebook profile sync with my phone? I have all of my contacts synced and when I text with some of my friends I can see their picture but mine just has the little android. Does anybody know how I can sync my profile to my phone so my facebook picture and status updates and comments shows up?
Is syncing with Facebook supposed to make your contact's pictures their default from facebook or just get there phone numbers?
If the contact name is the same (or very similar) in Facebook as it is in Google, then Android will merge the information. Thus, if you have duplicate contacts, you may just have two of the same name in Google. Try this:
Finally, force sync the contacts to refresh on your phone. Hope that helps.
I am having problems with duplicate contacts too. I tried turning off the checkmark next to facebook and turning it back on for a forced sync, but I still have duplicates. I went back in first and made sure that the names matched up. still no help. any ideas?
Mine appears to sync okay. If you are using the Facebook app made by Facebook, open it and tap the Facebook logo at the top to get to the home page. Then tap menu, settings, sync contacts. Make a selection to Sync all or Sync with existing contacts. Tap Okay and exit the application. Tap menu, settings, accounts & sync, Facebook, and then remove the check mark and add it back again to trigger a new synchronization. Hopefully, that should work. Please note that the Google contacts should have the same name (or very similar) in order to synchronize the data with Facebook.
