    Hi guys,

    Am I the only one here that's having problem with Facebook? I'm using the official FB app but after the update, I'm having problem syncing my Facebook to People Hub, so what happens, everytime I get message it only says: "Facebook User". Even old threads only shows "Facebook User".

    Same problem with me too.... And i tried pressing sync button from the Facebook many times. But its of no use! Also im not able to sync my contacts from hotmail to phone. Now it seems like hotmail doesn't have contact sync option! It only shows email sync option! Anybody knows what to do??

    I did but but after a while it will return the same error: "We weren't able to sync right now. Please try again in a little while". Been doing this the whole day :(
    I also restarted my phone several times.

    You just have to "long press" say the "Outlook" icon/logo and a drop down will appear and will ask you if you want to sync.

    And hethler, my facebook sync problem is solved now! I went into the Facebook app and in the settings page you will have an option "connect with phone". Though it is same as the option we used from the "add account" page, this worked!

    Your "Live" account is your "Microsoft Account" so, hold and press "Microsoft Account" icon and it'll show "sync" option.

    "Connect to phone" for facebook seemed to work, but it is showing the wrong profile picture on the "Me" tile. Even after syncing. Any way to force update?

    Yeah, checked the app already and it was already setup that way, restarted FB and the phone several times, also cleared some cache/temp files. It won't contunue to sync, it will only show "synching now" for few seconds then it will stop.

    "but it is showing the wrong profile picture on the "Me" tile.
    Maybe because it automatically looked up for your "Live" profile pic?

    Yes I am thinking this might be the case, how do I make it use my facebook pic? You have the option for your contacts which profile to use but I can't find that option for my own self. In 8.0 it automatically chose your FB pic after you synced your FB account. Maybe another MS oversight.

    1. Tap your "Me Tile"
    2. Tap the "current" photo on your "Me Tile"
    3. It will then display your options for the profile (Outlook, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, or upload a new one)

    Please take note that your profile photo here will reflect on your Windows 8 Device (Surface, laptop, PC)
