    I'm going insane here. I want to link a few facebook contacts with my regular phone contacts, some work fine while others DON'T! I used to just click "link contacts" you can't do that anymore?!?! You also used to be able to use Facebook as a picture source, I see you can't do that either???

    as far as the contact linking goes, it looks like its still in there, its just called "share name cards" now.

    Thank You. Man I was ripping my hair out, between UI crashes (Finally figured out it was the Slacker Widget along with the Weather.com widget... I guess they need to get an update to work properly) and contacts I wish wishing I didn't upgrade. Things seem to be running smooth now.

    Thanks guys for the help!!

    “We believe it is very important that users are able to control their data. So in the over-the-air update for Nexus S, we have a small change to how Facebook contacts appear on the device. For Nexus S users who downloaded the Facebook app from Android Market, Facebook contacts will no longer appear to be integrated with the Android Contacts app. Since Facebook contacts cannot be exported from the device, the appearance of integration created a false sense of data portability. Facebook contact data will continue to appear within the Facebook app. Like all developers on Android, Facebook is free to use the Android contacts API to truly integrate contacts on the device, which would allow users to have more control over their data. We are removing the special-case handling of Facebook contacts on Nexus S and future lead devices. We continue to believe that reciprocity (the expectation that if information can be imported into a service it should be able to be exported) is an important step toward creating a world of true data liberation — and encourage other websites and app developers to allow users to export their contacts as well.” Google statement
