HTC One M9, latest HTC Sense Update, Facebook Sync Issues

This is really a minor issue but it's pretty annoying. Facebook sync was previously syncing my contact photos with people's profile pictures. For about 3 months now it hasn't been working at all. Matter of fact when I look at the Facebook Account under the Sync setting it has none of the checkbox options to sync anything like the other accounts.

I have tried the following:

Logged out of Facebook
Removed the HTC Sense app permissions on Facebook
Ensured Facebook Platform is enabled
Removed the Facebook account on the sync settings
Re-added the Facebook account
Re-logged into Facebook
Re-approved the HTC sense permissions

Screenshot of what my Facebook account looks like. It's just blank. No more options to sync.

It's really frustrating after I went through the whole effort of making sure all my contact's names match their facebook profiles. I appreciate any help anyone can give me.

I noticed this as well. 6.0 seems to have changed the contact app around a bit too.

Try the 3rd party app Sync-me. It matches the photos etc to your contacts from book of face.

Grab an old Facebook apk from apkmirror. My version 42 still had the sync feature. Stupid Facebook removed the feature and didn't tell people

Your absolutely right. This kid is really well off behind this app. A warning would have been appropriate.
