    I cannot figure out why my Facebook contacts will not show up on my GO Contacts EX list. I have the sync Facebook option checked in the GO Contacts EX settings as well as the sync options in Facebook set to sync all. I've searched through every forum and searched it every way I can think to word it on Google. Someone please help me!

    Select menu, then the contacts account option and select Facebook from there! Should do the trick!

    I know with a Galaxy Nexus no matter how much you want to have pictures for your facebook contacts it won't work since Google doesn't like facebook, if you're having the same problem you could find a work around like HackSync, which enables your facebook picture contacts in High Detail, so they aren't all blurry. Otherwise I don't know what the problem is.

    Sorry, hope this helps.

    It's not the pictures that I can't figure out.. the contacts themselves wont even show up in my contacts list. I'm beginning to think this is just me..

    Otherwise, maybe it is just an ICS thing.. but no one out there seems to have this problem like I do. Not sure what to do at this point.

    I don't completely understand what you're saying... but I personally don't have twitter so I don't have that one selected. Just everything except that. They show up in the default contact app on the phone.. but not in GO Contacts EX. This is what I'm not understanding. Is there another app or something that I can use as well as GO Contacts EX that will fix this?

    So.. upon further research, I found this..

    http://androidforums.com/samsung-ga.../533532-go-contacts-ex-facebook-contacts.html

    And at first this seemed to answer all my questions.. I mean it still does pretty much tell me that it is an ICS problem. Because Go Contacts EX is not the only alternative contacts/dialer app that doesn' sync my Facebook contacts (trust me, I downloaded them all one by one to see if they worked), no luck whatsoever.
    But then I got to thinking.. Do all of you that have commented on this have GO Contacts EX and have your FB contacts synced? Because if that is the case then I am back to square one. Maybe it is something with my phone?

    No sure.. any feedback would be much appreciated. :)
