    I currently use Google Exchange for my contacts. This has been working great for a long time. A friend of mine told me I needed to link my Facebook account to my contacts for pictures and birthdays. This looked to work out great as I did get everyone's pictures and birthdays but it also looks to hurt some apps.

    Now when I go into apps like WhatsApp I have duplicate names for just about everyone in my contact list. I don't know if WhatsApp can correct this but if they can't what are my options?

    It seems like I can remove my Facebook account and "merge" all its data with my current contacts.. Does this work well? Or should I just turn off the contacts portion of the Facebook integration? I'm guessing I would lose peoples pics and birthdays if I did this though?

    In short I guess im wondering if others have had this issue and what they did to make it manageable.
