Facebook sync to Iphone?

Hi,

I was wondering if there was a way to sync Facebook information to my iPhone specifically:

1. my contact pictures
2. birthdays
3. events

I would like all of this information to show up in contacts/ical on my iPhone and also my mac if possible.

Thanks for the help.

Yup.

Go into facebook on your iPhone/iPod Touch.
Go Apps/Friends
Choose the button on the top left (looks like a send to box with error coming out).
Choose Sync Contacts

It will sync contact photos with your current contacts on iOS. I also believe it does birthdays, but I may be mistaken.

ok thanks for the help. Using the suggested methods I am able to sync contacts (so basically I can see the photo from Facebook in my contacts) and events.

I just figured out how to sync birthdays to ical. Its basically the same method as syncing events but you have to click on Facebook birthdays and then click the magnifying glass where there is an option to export birthdays. Now the birthday list of my friends in in my calendar which is shared between my iPhone and mac via iCloud.

This is so cool now!

Thanks,

I know this post is old but with the new Facebook app you can't do this. I've been looking and can't find how to do this
