    Has anyone figured out this problem with facebook not linking photos with contacts? This is annoying...thought this was supposed to be an update not a downgrade

    I too am now having this problem after recently discovering that my Gmail contacts had stopped syncing.

    I backed up my contacts to my SD card and then went into Menu > Settings > Applications > Manage applications > Contacts Storage and clicked the 'Clear Data' button. After this, my Gmail contacts re-synced, but now they will not link up with Facebook. When I select a contact in the People app and tell it to link with a Facebook profile, it searches and says 'no matches found'.

    I have tried unchecking the 'sync contacts' button under the Facebook section of the Accounts & Sync menu, as well as deleting & re-adding my Facebook account but to no avail. Oddly enough, I am able to view all the photo albums of my Facebook friends under the Photos app.


    EDIT: As I was posting this, the Facebook pictures for all my contacts decided to link themselves and now show up as they did before. Typical. :rolleyes:
