    So i updated my nexus s to 2.3.7 rooted stock,
    and after downloading the facebook app, i wanted to sync my contacts to my phone for the pictures and everything like normal.

    well long behold that whole menu section for syncing your contacts is gone.

    i even deleted the new facebook app, and used titanium backup to restore version 1.6.4, well the menu section "other settings" is there, but the whole menu itself is gone.

    so what gives?

    why is this option gone and how can i get it back?

    i really look forward to the pictures and stuff being updated per my contacts.

    Because of not everyone having their Facebook number, and having to need a single person have two separate contact profiles. It was thus decided that it was not very well a good thing for Google to take time from their devs to perfect something that is not on their priority to fix, with absolutely not benefit whatsoever....***cough**Google+***end cough****

    when did this happen though?
    because when i updated the app to 1.70 a week or two back the option was there...
    doesnt facebook make the app?

    i guess im just not getting it.

    but others still have the option, is it just us nexus users?

    Google blocked Facebook contact sync many updates ago. This is not because of the recent update.

    What's the problem? You couldn't sync contact pics anyway.

    Yeah, this happened a while back.

    You have two Options.

    An App called Sync my Pix, if you are just looking for the photo sync (I figure that is what most people are looking for).

    Or you could use the Facebook app that I use called "Friendcaster". I think it is a better app in general. I am not sure if the free version includes this sync, but I think it does.

    Yes I know, and again I will repeat what I said. Google a couple of updates ago blocked the service, because of privacy concerns they had. You however can unblock it, when rooted.

    I missed this feature when I first got onto the Nexus. After rooting and syncing Facebook I now hate this feature. Aside from having the profile pictures sync with your contacts it's rather annoying. For instance: When I go to type an email I start by typing someones name. NOW, that Facebook is synced I get 2 email addresses that appear. One being there "Public Fake" Facebook email. And the other the one they actually use. Secondly, when I tap on an "avatar" of a person in say GTalk: it comes up with 2 numbers for whom I've had one. Both numbers being the same just one is different format from Facebook.

    So, with that said. I missed it and now despise it's annoyance. I even just deleted my Facebook app because it finally works but I guess it took a 30mb running background service to do so. Eating up all my ram. Turning on gps every time I launch the app to just go to what the mobile site is anyways. Garbage.

    Like what? Still have your old phone? Fire it up on wifi and grab what you need.

    Or just export your data from facebook into your gmail account.

    Well that explains why it was there last week and not now.

    I was rooted running gpa.
    Now I'm rooted but running stock 2.3.7.

    So until I'm using a custom rom and not stock it won't come back?

    I'll have to use one of the apps mentioned above instead?

    Thanks

    I don't even see the difference. The feed order never makes sense to me anyways. And I'm not trying to stay up to date like that. I just look what's there without scrolling. Lol.

    No man, not that, this........


    And you cant see it but off to the right there is a bar that lists years, 2010, 2009, etc, all the way back to when you joined Facebook. Anyone who visits your wall can click on a year and then that expands into months and they can click a month and see all your posts for that time period.

    There is also this, but I don't know how accurate it is.

    HEADS UP every time you say a word of public interest Facebook adds it to the interest page of the topic even if the post is PRIVATE. Meaning on FB nothing is private anymore. For example if I say T-Mobile in one of my posts it automatically starts showing it on the Facebook "T-Mobile" interest page even though my original post was limited to my friends. Just thought it'd be useful for you guys to be careful the topics you talk about on Facebook because they will be published with or without your permission.

    Wow, why does mine not look like that?

    And Friendcaster allowed me to sync my facebook contacts, just for reference...

    It's the developer preview. If you are a Dev you get it. I absolutely hate it. Its showing a ton of my personal stuff public I didn't want public. Tons of stupid events I was invited to.
