    Hi,

    I have to link a lot of my contacts manually to my Facebook friends. I read it should go automatic, but that doesn't seem to work for me all the time. (People -> Updates and Events -> Update now)

    It seems it only automatically links people who have recently updated any photos recently. Is it possible to force it to go over each of my contacts and see if there is a match?

    Also, I would LOVE it if the contact would be synced back into Gmail with the information it pulled from Facebook. Is this possible?

    Ofcourse, right after I posted it, it said it had found about 400 profiles that could be linked. It is now linking them.

    Still, does anybody know how I could sync that information back to Google?
