    Hi
    On my MacBook I chose for an iCloud and Facebook account for my contacts, so all my contacts would have profile pictures etc.
    This means there are a lot linked accounts, which brings my problem.
    When you look at the attachment, at picture 3 you can see there is duplicate information (twice her Facebook account), sometimes it's multiple birthdays, addresses, etc.
    Picture 2 shows you I have the option to remove the duplicate information.
    Which I did this week for all 747 contacts and then I chose to update my contacts in settings with Facebook, and the duplicates returned...
    Picture 1 is just to show you there are 2 linked accounts...
    I could delete the iCloud account for each contact but I would lose a lot of information and certainly phone numbers...
    Hope you guys can help me out with this one:)

    Thanks

    you can't stop the fb info coming in, so delete the other bits if they are the same

    Sorry for the late response I must have unsubscribed accidently from this thread...
    I get the idea, do you know a 'fast' way to do this? Because with my iPhone will take me hours again
    Thanks for your reply!
