    Correct, and no matter what I do I cant get it to sync. When i go to add account under accounts and sync and hit facebook, nothing happens as if its a dead link

    I believe Google has been blocking it on Nexus's for a while -
    Google disables contact sync in Facebook for Android, but only Nexus S for now -- Engadget

    Here's a open thread about it on Google Support:
    Why won't my Galaxy Nexus let me add a facebook account to Accounts & Sync - Google Mobile Help

    I use the app SyncMyPix to get contact pictures, which is really only what I used the fb contact sync for anyways.

    Same with me but I thought this was a known issue.

    I had to install SyncMyPix to get the contact pix up from FaceBook....they say in the 4.0.3 release update coming soon that they will restore some sort of contact pic support from social networking sites...we shall see....
