    My account photo keeps changing to something I had not set. I have a photo that I use, and moved it to the folder that contained all the rest of the account photos, but it keeps changing. I have changed it in address book, and Pref. But it will just change back to another photo. Is there a bad pref file or what is going on. This is just got me going bonkers.

    Running IMac 2010, OS X 10.7.1

    You have friends sync set up in your iPhone Facebook application and when you connect the phone to the computer after a while in a wild, the FB app changes your photo to your FB profile pic.
