    Default Re: facebook contact sync

    I used "Contact Sync for Facebook" and it seems to work exactly like I wanted—I can see the statuses and it pulls in my FB contacts. Works on my Nexus 4, no problem.

    I don't think so. Although you'll still see a "Facebook contacts sync" checkbox in the settings of your phone, it won't actually work. Facebook isn't following Googles rules when it comes to data portability and syncing, so they don't get to sync properly until they change how they're operating.

    It seems to be the same case now even in v2.0. Non-stock Android phones with OEM customizations like Touchwiz and Sense often have Facebook contact syncing built in to their OS, but that's independent of Facebook's own app that's downloaded from Play.
