Hi
Since over half a year ago, so even before iOS 7, Facebook all of a sudden stopped adding new facebook friends to my contacts list and stopped updating info of existing contacts, while this option is turned on.
I tried to reactivate this 'feature' by deleting my facebook account from my iPhone, toggling the update contacts functions on and off again but that doesn't seem to work.
I actually really like this feature which also gives every contact a photo.
Should I try to delete my facebook account from my MacBook too?
Has anyone had the same problem?
Thank you in advance and god bless

It never worked right after the initial sync. In fact, all it does is mess up my contacts more, and even syncs wrong contacts. I ended up turning it off.

Thanks for the input! Do you have any idea how to get all the synced info into the native contacts app?

It shows the synced info in the SYNC.me app but not in the native contacts app

+1 for Sync.Me. I read somewhere that Facebook changed their algorithm because people were complaining about all their FB contacts in their contacts. Now it only syncs contacts with useful information. Apparently pictures aren't useful?

An app like that would sync Facebook info and put it into the contacts information so that it can be seen in the native contacts app.

In iOS 7 this has been moved to the Settings app, go to

Settings>Facebook>update all contacts

You need to sign in here first, if you haven't.
