34 linked profiles!!! WTH?
Hey so I started noticing my Droid x getting sluggish and the "sync" notification on a lot.
I just noticed that EVERY one of my contacts has 34 Linked Profiles!!! And they are all Facebook links.
I deleted the facebook app, but the links are still there for every contact.
Is there a way to delete the links without deleting them one by one?
Anyone know why this happened and how to fix it?

Interesting. I just checked my contact list and any of my contacts who aren't on facebook only have one linked profile, but any of my contacts who are also facebook friends have a minimum of five linked profiles. Some have more than ten! They have one which reads "facebook" and multiple which read "nativefacebook". Time to email the development team.

Ok so here is what I did. I deleted the facebook app completely from the Applications page in settings, Manage applications.
That sent my phone into reset for close to an hour!
I thought something was wrong but after an hour it started up and lo and behold the 36 links were gone and all was back to normal.
Hope this helps someone. Delete FACEBOOK!!!

Well, I uninstalled all of the updates and facebook apps that I could... and then reinstalled them and updated them. Then re-synced everything, with both of the facebook apps that were on my phone... Not sure why there were two, but one was the stock and the other was the one I downloaded when I went to facebook.com and clicked the link at the bottom of the page saying something like "Download Facebook App."
After I re-synced the contacts, I had to go into my contacts and fix like 10 or so of them because they were not all linked. It happened again today tho, where I needed to re-link... So I wonder whats going on.. its kind of an annoyance to keep trying to fix.

Just noticed this on my phone too. Each contact has 160 linked profiles. I'm unable to remove the links from facebook through facebook, it just freezes. The phone is barely usable. Going to try to remove the application. I also turned off autosync for the time being until this gets fixed.

I'm having a similar problem .... but the difference is, my contacts are all fine. They only show one for every person. However, the problem is when I go to MESSAGES > ADD PERSON, there is 4 or 5 of everyone with identical information.
How do I fix this??

Had the same problem with 31 linked profiles, it was driving me nuts because when I typed a name to send an sms, it would give me 31 identical entries. Anyway here's what fixed mine:
Install the latest release (3.1.2)
Go to Accounts>Facebook
Check Sync again.
Worked perfectly for me.
