    Just updated my Eris to 2.1 today. Once updated I lost all my contacts photos from facebook in "people."

    Just wondering how to get them back on there.

    Thanks a ton in advance
    Will

    Make sure you log in to HTC Sense Facebook and not the app...then goto Accounts and Sync in your settings and sync facebook contacts......open your people app and wait about 15-20 minutes and all their images should show up gradually

    How would one get to the Sense Facebook Widget if they have removed it from the home screen? :eek:

    Sometimes it took me several forced syncs and it definitely took A LOT of patience...

    So are any pictures showing up? Did you have them synced up with Facebook before you upgraded?

    For some reason the only facebook contact picture that came up was for my own contact card... otherwise nothing came up. Yes I had them synced with facebook previously.

    Well, the few times it wouldn't sync for me I literally just left my phone on a table with the people app launched and just let it sit there for a while. That's solved the problem for everyone so far. I have heard that using the Facebook Android App can cause some sycning issues. I don't use the app. I just use the browser and goto touch.facebook.com...


    ALSO: Make sure you have signed into Facebook with Facebook for HTC Sense..

    Not to sound stupid, but what do you mean by "make sure you have signed into Facebook with Facebook for HTC sense?"

    Is this through the actual Facebook webpage online?

    Well make sure you've signed in under the Settings>Accounts&Sync and the touch.facebook.com website as well.

    This is so frustrating... Okay, I have synced through account settings, and logged onto facebook.com.

    When I use the Facebook app it shows all my contacts but when using Facebook HTC sense it doesn't show all my contacts.

    Need Help!

    I also saw this in a post a while back...try doing this...

    "FWIW, I had FB picture sync issues on V1, and still have them sometimes on V2. (When it occasionally happens, I just remove my Facebook for HTC Sense account, re-add it, and wait ten minutes for it to finish syncing.)"

    Just click "Remove Account" and then re-add it...let me know if this works...

    Already tried that... Maybe I'm missing something. On 1.5 you used to go to people and click on each individual then go their contact card and link it to a facebook account. Their picture would automatically come up. Now there is now link even available. None of my facebook contacts come up to link the contact to.

    That's correct, on 1.5 you individually synced them...I don't have any other solutions...those are the things I did to fix my sync problem...sorry man

    Had the same issue. Here was my fix. Uncheck sync contacts automatically in Settings > Accounts & Sync > Facebook. Go to people > press menu > press view > make sure Facebook is selected (mine was not after upgrade). Next go back to Settings > Accounts & Sync > re-check the sync button on Facebook contacts and then hit the force sync option. They should start to load.
