    Lots of complaints about this. Try an app called SyncMyPix.

    the reason it was not working for me was for some reason my gmail contacts made a contact for my name but the link was to a dead page. (Welcome to Facebook! ) or something like that. once i delete my own name from my "people" it started to work again.

    okay I think I figured out the facebook picture problem with it not syncing to your contacts. I went in to settings>accounts&sync> then select the facebook account, then remove account. then go back and add account and add facebook account and then resync to contacts and it will slowly add photos to your contacts. thats what i did. It sync all my contacts no problem. Try it let me know if it works

    went to the desktop version of Facebook, account -> application settings -> authorised and deleted every "facebook" or "facebook for android" bar one, and now I've got Facebook sync on my Nexus One :)

    after searching the web about this problem, i found that u can only add a social ONE time only if u delete it and readd it u wont we able to do this.
    "DO NOT REMOVE UR ACCOUNT FROM YOUR PHONE"
    Login to your fb from your pc> account -> application settings -> authorised and deleted every facebook for android, samsung mobile. them try to re sync.

    the other solution that i have and probe of it, create a new account on fb, i know u dont want to loose all your contact, is a pain in the ****. but u can request them to be your friend again.

    hopefully samsung will come out with a better solution fast.

    yea when u DELETE the account nad relogin it will sync but thne when u add one right after it wont sync. Basically the only way to sync is add all the contacts and sign out sign back in there isnt auto sync that works. i cleared data , deleted all the facebook with a little mobile next to it and relogged in, it will sync but for example if I ADD OEN RIGHT AFTER I LOG BACK IN IT WONT AUTO-SYNC?

    I deleted, my facebook account from the account and sync setting. then I clicked add account and added my facebook account again. It sync'd up every contact. I even deleted a contact and added it again and it sync'd
