    Facebook

    Is there a facebook app that will sync with my contacts, but not put all my facebook contacts on my phone? I have like 1500 friends on facebook. i dont want anywhere near that much stuff on my phone. I have Facebook for android installed now, but that dosnt seem to sync. I really only want facebook pictures, but i guess seeing individuals news feeeds is a plus. not nessary though

    The only thing you can do right now - is choose not to see your facebook contacts.. They will still be on the phone, but you won't see them.

    In your contacts area - switch to only google mail (assuming you are syncing w google for your contacts) that's what I am doing.

    Hopefully the newer version of android will fix this issue.. a simple - only sync existing contacts option.

    But we won't know until it comes out.

    Could you still link those you wanna see with your existing google or phone contacts - if you choose to? Right now, all of mine are integrated in all...

    If you go to contacts - then choose on the top to only show Gmail not all contacts - then that's what you'll see in your phone. The other contacts will still be there.. but I think you will still see everyone's updates in facebook - however - if you swipe to the right in contacts - you will see only your contact status updates.

    Does that make sense?

    yep that's the one. it worked but I would be hard pressed to say it worked great. i had a lot of mismatch contacts where my phone book did not match my face book names. I eventually just decided to set up the default face book app that came with the phone then chose to hide the FB contacts. today i installed bloo for face book but have not even had a chance to look at it.

    Seen mixed reviews with Bloo--can you sync contacts (can you pick and choose?)
