You set Facebook to either "sync all" or "sync with existing contacts". That's the choice.

People who are already in your contacts (Google etc) and also have facebook profiles, will be sync'd together.

You didn't need to wipe data on facebook. Its a setting.

How about going into Contact settings and customizing the contacts to display? Just show contacts from your google account or what not

Should be able to choose in the contacts settings what to show. Google only. FB only. Or both. Or you can customize it.
