Default Importing Facebook Pictures into Contacts?

I know my girlfriends HTC Hero uses the profile pictures of her Facebook contacts for the pictures in her contacts on her phone. Is there any way to do this on the droid? I signed into the facebook app, but beyond that I don't know what to do.

thanks

Yes, when you are in the facebook app (that came on the droid) go to settings and there should be an option.

Alternatively, you can go into settings, accounts and sync, and make sure your Facebook account is set to auto sync.

It is set to auto sync. But it has only synced a very small portion of my contacts' pictures. It will sync more if I go into facebook and do Sync All but I don't want all the random contacts I have in facebook in my phone. I just want the contacts that I have in my phone to sync with their pictures in facebook

First, the names must be exactly the same (unless someone knows how to manually link them)

Second I have noticed that only some of mine linked photos, and I think it has something to do with that persons facebook account settings. There were some where it linked the contact but didn't show a photo. But if I click on the contact, then go back to my contact list, there picture will show up.

I noticed the same thing. It seemed like if the contacts in Gmail already had images it uses those, if they do not it uses Facebook.

I would prefer to just use all images from Facebook since people rarely update their Google images. :\

What's weird is if I go to the person's facebook page through the contacts page it will update his/her photos. But it won't do it by itself. Really don't want to have to do that for allllll my contacts

Yea, that's what I was trying to articulate above.

Most of mine, did so automatically, but some didn't. Also, there are at least 2 contacts that don't link to Facebook, despite having the exact same names. If I go to their name in my contacts, I don't even see a "go to their Facebook profile" option.

I think these things are bugs that could/should be resolved.

You can set it so your contact list only shows contacts that has people's numbers instead of every single facebook contact

Thanks, that got me closer, but still doesn't seem like it's bringing in all my current contacts pictures. I guess I could do it again,and select synch all, instead of synch only existing, but that seems a little scary :-/

You can always change the sync back and it will remove them. It never actually imported the facebook contacts to my gmail.

The only sure fire way to ensure your contact uses the facebook image, that I have found is;

* Open Gmail, goto contact in question, Change Picture, and select, None
* Wait about 3-5 minutes and the Droid contact will start using the Facebook image.

Maybe go into the facebook app, unsync them and then resync.

Yep the name is important. More specifically, facebook often has first and last names, if you edit the normal contact you have to put both names in the first name box rather than use the last name box for the last name.

You should just be able to click on contact, view information, then hit the menu button and edit contact, hit the menu button again and theres an option called join that will then ask you to merge a contact in your phone book to a contact in your facebook. Thats what I had to do

Default Any way to Unsync from Facebook

I have friends with Facebook pics that are sweeping landscape vistas (here I am at Mr. Rushmore) that are useless to tell who they are. I want to edit there contact photo back to a face pic but now when I try Contacts force closes on me.

I tried fix permissions as I am on cyanogenmod 5.0.8 but still force closing. Could it be because of the facebook sync to the pic.

But if name is different, it will create another entry. Hope this helps. thanks for all the help i have received on this site.

Does anyone know how to get the facebook sync to work so that their profile pictures are their contact pictures. I know that I click on settings and then go under accoutns & sync. once I get to the facebood one I try to sync it, It always says Syn is currently experiencing problems. It will be back shortly. Well... it's been like that for a week... this is is a brand new phone!

I got a new Android phone and this problem has been bugging me for weeks. I have one contact that I communicate with a lot and that contact's picture was not syncing from Facebook. I finally figured out a fix after trying everything I could think of.

All I did: Go to the person's entry in your contacts, edit contact, and simply add a space after the contact's last name.

I believe the problem was because this person had her maiden name also on her Facebook profile. So, I noticed that on Facebook, her name is listed as: Married Name (Maiden Name) -- with a space before the parentheses. So, I just added a space to the contact's last name (married name) in my phone, and synced with Facebook again, and it showed up right away!

I'm not saying this is the solution to everyone's problem, but it fixed mine and it's worth a shot.

Default How to sync facebook photos to contacts

Found the answer to this question:

1- make sure settings are set to allow sync in the app
2- make sure settings are set to allow to sync to mobile in Facebook
3-- go to contacts menu in your phone and click on a contact you know is in your Facebook account.
Click edit in the menu section and then find "linked contacts"
Click that. Then it will show possibilities (twitter, other linked contact #, etc). If no Facebook icon shows up then click "add link contact"
Then up at the top it should say "Get Friends"
Click that.
Then it should have "contacts Facebook Twitter" (others if you have other accounts set up---- I only have twitter and facebook).
Click Facebook
Then it will pull up all of your Facebook friends & their pictures.
Then you will go through the list and check each friend you want to sync over to your contacts.


It worked for my Samsung Fascinate and I am very new to Android.

Hope it works for everyone else.

Is there a way to keep the contacts from switching to their facebook names when you link them? A few for some reason when I linked kept the contact names they had in my phone, but a majority of my 100+ switched to their FB name.

Default Droid Sync Facebook Photos

I have found that with my Droid X, you need to use the native Facebook application that comes on Droid in MY ACCOUNTS to set up first before you ever install the Android Market FB app.

The native FB application will import your facebook contacts automatically and give the option to use FB as the picture source.

You need to setup the native application first for it to work, then you can download the Android Market FB and install to have the better FB options. But the market FB one does not appear to sync with Contacts.

If you have the Market version installed, uninstall it. Then delete the account in MY ACCOUNTS and start it over from step 1.

If anyone is looking for a full screen picture ID application, try CALLSOCIAL - Facebook in the market, if you search call social as 2 words you will not find it, this app works great, best picture ID app for android.

My honeycomb contacts list doesn't have a menu as you describe,
There is a settings button but it doesn't have any get contacts selection.

Also, my settings > accounts dos not have Facebook entryies, and no way to add them.

I agree to this.

Hold on, Some case inspite selecting none in Gmail account will still not pick the facebook profile picture. Here is what I did to fix in this case..

I suffixed the contact name with Aplha-Numeric character. Example: I changed the name "Kyle XY" to "Kyle XYa" then it picked up the facebook profile. I tried with special character but some worked (:D).. "Kyle XY" to Kyle XP:D"
You need to do this changes in Gmail contacts.
It seems there's a bug (between Android & Facebook link) which need to be address.

Till fix is out hope this temp solution will help you out... :)

I have a Samsung Infuse and I was able to edit a contact's default info such as Name, Phone#, E-mail. Under the name I could select either the info from my phone, or the info from the e-mail address (facebook account). Hope this helps.

Default Contapps!!!

I had this problem for awhile and the app I was happiest with was Contapps. After you install it, go to the settings menu there is a Facebook Sync Option. The reason I like it so much is because it's the only app I could find that will sync High Resolution photos as people's contact pictures. Enjoy!!!

I mite have to check this app outvI hate seeing just the ugly blank icon next to my contacts and I don't want to text everyone askin for pics(especially my guy friends lol) only thing my internal memory is like super low every time I dl a app I gotta delete one to make the low disk space icon to go away, I hope the makers of the app fix that little issue, was using friendcaster which has been the "ish" but lately I get notifications waaaaay late sometimes double notifications smh if they ever fix that bug ill go back

I had the problem where the Facebook app would download all my contacts but none of their profile photos. Removing and resyncing didn't help. So out of the blue I just logged out of my Facebook account on the app and then back in. It asked what kind of sync I wanted to do, I selected sync all. Now everything is fine. All Facebook contacts with profile photos are syncing like they should.
