I don't want facebook to take over my contact photos
Is there a way to set up the facebook account widget and not have it take over your contact photos?
My brother and dad have the same name, my dad has facebook, my brother does not. So the facebook app took it upon itself to take my dads facebook image and apply it to my brother's contact entry. It doesn't seem you can change it, or I haven't found the setting.

One option would be to download the regular Facebook app and not use the built-in Blur version. Just make sure you delete your facebook from 'accounts'.
In your contact info - is your brother's contact linked to your Dad's FB profile? If so, unlink (menu button) and then delete the photo thru contact edit.
There is a way to do it... i'll look and edit this post.... or i though i remember seeing a way to do it...
Edit: Or you can do what the above post says that will do it too edit the contact and tap te picture and you can change it or delete it
Thought i saw something when you first set it up... but maybe not...

This is exactly why I refuse to use the Blur's social networking stuff - it hijacks your phone contacts. If it simply left those alone, then I think it would be a 600% better product.
Yes my brothers contact is linked to my dad's facebook. I unlinked it and all is good, Thanks.
Another thing that sucks about the blur facebook is you cannot delete a contact if they are a facebook friend.
Good you got it. Yeah that does suck. Let us delete Fb contacts Moto!
I found you can go My Accounts>Menu button>Picture source, but it only gives Fb or Twitter as source options, no Gmail option like on the HTC's lame Motorola.
I had the same problem. Uninstalled the Blur FB widget (and ACCOUNT!) and went back to using Gmail contact pictures, which works very well. I simply downloaded the regular FB app to deal with FB. Too bad they don't give you a choice between Blur FB and GMail as the source of contact pictures. That would have solved the problem.
