    New to Windows phone (well had a lumia 900 for a couple days). I configured my lock screen to where it shows my Facebook albums and I thought the pictures were supposed to change, am I wrong? In either setting the collage or one large photo my photo has stayed the same.

    If you go into the facebook app and drag up the menu on the bottom of the screen you will see an option for "Lock Screen Settings" That is where you will pick your options for the lock screen picture stuff. I have yet to test it so let us know if that gets it working for you.

    Mine was doing the same thing for a while. Turns out there was an error in the accounts setting for Facebook and it wasn't connecting properly. Try going into settings<email+accounts and check that Facebook is connecting properly.

    I went into those settings and what am I looking for there? There was no error message listed under Facebook if that's what I was to look for?

    Well, apparently I may have jumped the gun there... It changed once, then got stuck again... I have no idea why...

    Mine doesn't seem to change either. And when I Check background and tasks, facebook is set to "block" with no way to turn it back on......not sure if that has anything to do with it/.

    Mine changes, but not very often. I tried doing the custom settings and deselecting a few of the albums and that got the image to change, but it still seems to sit on the same image for too long. I have hundreds of pics for the app to choose from, so I kind of expect to not see the same one all day.

    Same boat here, if you go into the lock screen settings (in the FB app) and then hit the tick at the bottom it sometimes changes, but other than that not at all.

    That said, the Live Tile for Facebook is pretty shoddy as well. Curses.

    What a real pity. :( I'd love to set up a folder either on the phone or on FB specifically for lockscreen pics and have it change every time I unlock the phone. Bleh.

    Its funny..

    I tried the same thing.. Went to deselect a few albums from my facebook setting, and then nothing..

    before when I had all albums, it switched between all my facebook pictures just fine, but once I deselected a few albums, it now just shows a black background.

    I now use Bing instead, at least its some great pics..

    I've found that it just doesn't do very good job of choosing pictures. Seems like the same 5-10 keep rotating, though I have 100s of pictures available.

    that was my experience. It even kept using some that I had removed. Switched to Bing. Wating for an update to Paper Shuffle to use photos I have marked as Favorites on my phone...
