    I updated to my profile picture on both Outlook and Facebook about 2-3 weeks ago, but my picture on my "Me" live tile remains my old one. I tried to update the picture in the app (it asked me if I wanted to post to Outlook or Facebook, but they already have the new picture so I unchecked those boxes and tried to save it anyway, but it hasn't changed the picture.

    I had that problem a while back. From what I remember, I went to the actual Outlook.com site and went to my profile and changed the picture again from there.. Hope this helps.

    That is the way I ooriginally changed it, and if I log on there now it shoes my new picture, but my Me tile still shoes my old one.

    Hmm..

    I did happen to change (well, forgot and reset) my Facebook password this morning. Maybe that had something to do with it.

    Can't harm to change your Facebook password, it'll force you to reconnect to your Microsoft account. Maybe that will restart the sync.

    Have you tried simply unpinning and then re-pinning the tile?

    Maybe syncing your Microsoft account in settings in the People Hub?

    How do you re-pin the Me tile? It doesn't show up in apps. Is it listed in contacts (a contact for me in my own contacts?)?

    Yes. If you look into the contacts you will see your Me tile picture. Press that and then pin it. That is your Me tile.

    I have the exact same problem, I've tried it all, but nothing will work. MIine has only been stuck for about a week, but yet every other device I own (Win8 laptops, 2 other Win Phone 7's) have correctly synced my new profile pic. Like someone said above, its gotta be a server side issue, didnt think of that until I just read it, but makes complete sense.

    I had this issue too, but read a solution in another thread that solves the issue. The root of the problem is that the Me tile picks up whatever photo is the album cover photo in your FB profile album. There used to be a way to designate the album cover photo for your profile album in FB, but no longer. So log into FB on a computer, go to your profile album, select a photo that is already there, click on the edit button and select that photo as your profile photo. Not only will it make that photo your FB profile, it will make the selected photo your profile album cover, and your Me tile will soon pick that up and change.

    Yes, ok.. But why in the hell should I have to do all that stuff to update the tile, when other people tiles update automatically when they change their pic?? It doesn't make any sense to me really..

    If this is the case--that the Me tile simply grabs the cover photo from the Profile pictures album on Facebook--then I'm not annoyed at Windows Phone for displaying that picture. The real question is, why doesn't Facebook automatically change the cover photo for the Profile pictures album when you change your profile picture to a new picture. That's kind of dumb.

    Indeed, it was Facebook's fault. And now they fixed it. From Joe Belfiore on Twitter:

    And.. Facebook fixed the me tile issue. Try updating your me tile / profile photo again and it should update just fine.(@joebelfiore)

    I do not even use Facebook and I am having this problem. The original photo that I had for LinkedIn is being used on My "me tile". However, I changed that photo in LinkedIn over a month ago, and deleted the original photo from my account. The new photo shows on LinkedIn and other apps. Yet, the original photo still shows on "me tile."
