Hi,

It does it automatically. It does not actually download all the pictures from you FB albums, they are only placeholders, it is only when you open the album it downloads the pictures. This is similar to skydrive pics. You don't need to worry about those pictures consuming a lot of storage I guess.

There is no way to overcome it. (apart from disconnecting FB from your device)

It doesn't actually download them to the phone, as the gentleman above explained; it simply allows them to be accessed from your Pictures hub. Then, when you access them it will temporarily be downloaded to your phone until you close the pictures hub, where the phone's internal management will delete it from the cache.

No need to worry about it filling up your storage, it doesn't work that way.

I think he is also worried about Mobile data usage too. It is a normal process which gets stuff when you sync facebook account. (You could change the sync interval in settings)
