I think I have found a solution I downloaded Facebook Contact Sync from Play Googleand it has seemed to have worked... Then clicked off it in Contacts and then it syned them all again.

Kind Regards

I had the same problem, and was able to fix it by uninstalling and reinstalling Facebook. It has worked fine ever since.

I just found this thread. Thanks for this. In my case, Facebook Contact syncing was working, then I realized that I had two Facebook listings in My Accounts and I deleted one, which apparently was Facebook Contact Sync. Oops!

Apparently it is not an issue with Facebook or Google - Google did not like the changes to Facebooks privacy policies so they have removed support for syncing between the two in the new versions of Android. You can download a couple apps though that will do it for you, but the native support for syncing for Facebook has been removed from the Android OS completely.

You can download HaxSync or Friendcaster to fix the issue.

No, AFAIK Google had a custom interface just for Facebook but they scrapped it and wanted Facebook to integrate into the contacts like everyone else. The Facebook app's native integration is currently broken on CM and some other ROMs but it works on many official ROMs.
