    Question Add Facebook account to sync

    Firstly, must say I'm loving the Galaxy Nexus. I've upgraded from an HTC Legend so it is quite a leap.

    Just one little problem so far; when I Access Settings > Accounts & Sync, and try to add a Facebook account, I am taken back to the Accounts & Sync page.

    How can I set my phone up to sync with Facebook?

    I wonder if it's a bug. Perhaps (as a work-around) install the Facebook app and during it's setup it will ask if you want to sync contacts. Not sure if that will do anything or not but worth a shot maybe?

    I'm pretty sure contact syncing with facebook was taken out somewhere around 2.3.3 to 2.3.4 due to a "lack of reciprocity". But I'll fiddle around with some of the Facebook settings...if I can find them

    Contact syncing with Facebook is in 2.3.7. You do need to have the app installed before you'll see the contacts available in sync settings.

    This is definitely a bug. The reason you can tell is because when you edit a contact, if you select join, you are not presented the option to sync it to the facebook account so that you can use facebook icons for contact images. I hope someone can fix this soon since I have hundreds of contacts without pictures and I want to start creating contact widgets, and you can't update the pictures of the widget once created.

    I wonder if version 4.0.3 which is releasing now will resolve the issue. Per this post it includes "Social stream API in Contacts provider:
    Applications that use social stream data such as status updates and check-ins can now sync that data with each of the user’s contacts, providing items in a stream along with photos for each. This new API lets apps show users what the people they know are doing or saying, in addition to their photos and contact information."

    The 4.0.3 is the ICS version, not the Facebook app. The update you should have gotten shortly after your phone was activated was the 4.0.2 ICS update.

    So it's a waiting game for the devs to use the API from that to update their app.
