    Does my contact list need the socialnetworking.apk to update the data for the contacts from FaceBook? (pictures, status...)
    My "last" updated was a date AFTER I removed the .apk, but since then it was stuck basically on the 24th of Oct.
    Pictures I know are different on facebook dont come to my phone. I tried deleting and re-adding the account, and that fixed it, but thats not a long term solution.
    Does it need that APK or not? If not - how do i get it to sync more often?

    Yes you need it.
    You also need social to do OTA updates on your phone.
    Don't muck with social.

    Anyone running an old version of Launcher Pro...there was a facebook issue and it was fixed with version v0.8.1.1 (right about the 20th of Oct.)

    Just a thought

    Never updates Facebook profile pictures. Pretty much have to delete account and re-add to get new pictures. Stinks!

    SyncMyPix only does that if the contacts are on your phone, not straight facebook contacts, or google account contacts, its dumb. I dont know why anyone would want to "store" their contacts on their phone anyway.

    Mine used to update. Now it doesn't anymore. Perhaps this was one of the things broken in the 2.2 update. Can't really lock on a date, just remember one day I noticed it and had to remove and readd facebook to get it working.
