    I dont think so, you should be able to sync those who have phone numbers. But you can't individually control each person.

    found the fix...go under contacts...menu key....display group.....then you can choose from facebook, google, phone contacts, or all

    You may have to use trial and error on some of the apps in the market, what you are looking for is something I don't recall seeing, but perhaps an app exists that gives you the type of control you are looking for, but I doubt it.

    Goto contacts, select the contact you want to link, press menu, click link, select the FB contact.....done!

    My issue is, I don't want the Facebook app to sync all my contacts to my phone first. I want to specify which contacts it syncs to. Anyway to do this?

    How do you expect them to implement selective syncing? FB integration is somewhat lacking in Android, but that's a matter for FB, not Android.

    I think this is actually different for each phone. I had the HTC droid eris and then incredible and also the motorola droid now the x. HTC seemed more flexible and was easier to link and let you choose which contact display name and picture you want. I can't find yet a way to choose what display picture and contact names you want for the motorolas yet.
