Some really weird stuff happening here. My contacts list has 20-30 duplicates for some of my contacts. I see in other threads people refer to this too. Under my People tab-> View, the com.facebook.auth.login shows 32049 contacts and the number changes constantly. I only have 900 facebook friends. Anyone know whats going on here and why its freely duplicating these contacts??

Ugh. I download that update and I think "Finally, Facebook is on its way to making a decent app for Android. This actually looks good and is moderately functional."
Let me just take my foot out of my mouth here and give up completely on that.

This contact thing seems to be the biggest problem with the Android devices to date. If Facebook don't get this fixed its going to cause major unhappiness from customers. Facebook needs to get a hold of this issue and quick.

This fixed it for me, much easier.
"If you have the 1.3.1 facebook, it's likely the culprit. I had contacts that had hundreds of duplicates, they manifest themselves as linked contacts.
Log out of facebook, clear the facebook data, and the duplicates will go away. If you log back into facebook set the contact synchronization option to not sync, it should work until they come out with an update." - jeffs
When you log out of FB, it will warn you that all data will be removed (YAHOOO) so go ahead. Then log back in and select to NOT SYNC. It worked and my contacts are WAYYYY cleaner!
