Can you set up the Facebook app so that it doesn't sync contacts?
Is there a way to have the facebook app NOT sync contacts to the phone? This is for my sons X that I got him for Christmas. After he set up his facebook app, it populated his phone contacts with all his facebook people. I wiped the phone and started over, but don't want it to happen again.

I linked most of them together with the link option. It eliminated the clutter and the duplicates. Took no more than 20 minutes or so. The others are just there and I ignore them. But most of friends on face book I have their contact info anyway

Having it synced will give your contacts pictures as well as other info and it really doesnt take long. Also you can change the view of your contacts to just 'phone contacts'. Open up your contacts and click where it says Contacts and it will give you give you other catagories and choose Phone Contacts instead of All. Hope this helps.
I find it ridiculous that facebook assumes that everyone wants all of the inflated, phoney "friends" populated into our phones contact database. This is only a guess, but I doubt that even 20% of all the "friends" on facebook have ever even met, much less spoken to each other on the phone. I should shut up...I don't want to get wound up into a facebook rant.
The solution that I found for my sons phone was to leave the facebook app deleted and in either Dolphin or xScope browser, go into settings, user agent and change it from Android to Desktop/Computer. Thereafter, any site that you visit will only show the full version.
It works for us.

In other words, your rant should be directed at Motorola or you shouldn't be ranting at all because adding your Facebook account to Blur is completely optional.
