Facebook and Contact Problem
Here's what I'm experiencing on my Droid X:
I add someone to my contacts. I later add that same person as my friend on Facebook. That friend does not show up under the Facebook contact tab so I am unable to link the phone number to the Facebook profile on my phone. When I use the Facebook app, that friend does show up there. So how do I update new facebook friends to my contact list?

can anyone help me with this?
You shouldn't have to update...it should do it automatically, but you may have to wait a little bit for them to show up.
The only thing I can think of is to go into Settings > Accounts and make sure your facebook account is listed there.
I've tried to figure it out, and i can't figure out what push/update schedule facebook is on (if it's on one) when syncing new friends to your phone. They should appear within an hour but sometimes take longer. I also cannot figure a way to refresh/manually sync/force update/push facebook contacts in real time.

Well, you can go into settings inside the facebook app and change the refresh interval. The minimum is 30 minutes, so will probably have to wait up to that long for them to show up.
To force refresh, you could try toggling the refresh interval, i.e. change it to an hour, and then change it back to 30 minutes. That method works for manually refreshing my agenda widget, so it might work.
