    It sure does and has done for quite a while.

    :EDIT: I think it only works with Android 2.x

    Sync contacts, this function are really important. Otherwise, we have to import one by one manually, and that's horrible!

    Liking the new update, still wish you could sort what feed you get, live feed, status updates, etc. I hate sometimes seeing all the pages that I have liked advertising stuff instead of just being able to see what my friends are doing. Still like it though.

    There's a whole thread in the HTC Incredible forum about this. Several of us have noticed serious battery drain after updating the Facebook app. It seems that, at least for the Incredible, Facebook isn't letting the phone go to sleep.
