    Hello,

    I'm using a Nokia Lumia 925 GDR2 aka Amber

    I just recently realized that one of my contact pic was not syncing to its Facebook profile pic. I went on ahead and removed Facebook from my accounts and re-added it back.

    Well it solved the problem with that particular contact. Then I realized that it screwed up a few other contacts.
    I double checked on my Facebook to see if any of the contacts really did change their pics, but that was not the case.

    Is anyone else facing this problem? Can someone tell me what I can do to fix it?

    I'm sorry to hear that you are having issues with Facebook account syncing. Have you seen this thread? Perhaps it will help.

    I am facing the same problem.Since i updated my profile picture few days back on facebook, the ME live tile updated the profile picture itself.And the picture now shown on the live tile is not the picture i updated on facebook, infact its a older picture.Well basically before the amber update i could choose whatever picture i wanted to for the ME live tile which sometimes had a poor resolution.But after the amber update this is the first time i updated my profile picture on facebook and facing these issues.Also during the course it messed up my contact display pictures which were nicely connected to facebook and updated the pictures regularly before i updated the profile picture.I tried syncing the facebook account under the settings but it just doesn't seem to work.I just hope they fix this issue in GDR3 (Bittersweet Shimmer)

    Same here, i eventually got my new Me tile profile picture (removed Google account and Skype, put new picture and then reinstalled skype), but my People Hub doesn't get the latest Facebook profile picture for my contacts.

    How come everyone has different problems? Mine has issues with contact profiles. Some of you have problem with the Me tile and some with the people hub.
    What's going on here?

    Yeah I'm having that problem. In my case when I check that contact profile on my surface pro. It shows that the Facebook contact in its entirety is missing for that contact. But on my windows phone it shows that the contact is well in synce with Facebook and that goes same when I check it on outlook.com

    Try syncing it again using the People Hub. Sign in using it, then go on!
    Usually works for me.

    I have tried it. Syncing it in people hub on both phone and slate. No results were achieved. Only difference was some of the Facebook profiles cams back but on the phone side. Contact profile pic still fail to sync.

    re-adding FB in Email+Accounts only fixed it for some contacts and it sucks to re-pair all contacts, was really hoping this GDR3 preview would fix this.. Nope.. :(

    I think it's a problem with GDR2 that Microsoft must have over looked

    hi
    i am also facing the same issue. in my case its quite peculiar. some of my contact's facebook profile pics are getting update but in the case of others some old pic is being shown as their profile pic which is not even in their list of pictures. i believe these were the initial profile pics of my contacts when i did the sync for the first time in june 2013. please somebody help to find a solution to remove this bug
