I would like to see a link or something to that.

It's not that I don't believe you but I've seen this problem reported for a loooong time and it's yet to be fixed. I can't say for sure since I'm not a dev for Google but this "fix" should take maybe a week max.

Hah. Google forum thread:

Months of people shouting the same complaint and google employees chiming in with varying degrees of "working on it" and no progress.

Seems like for whatever reason, someone somewhere thinks it's better to say nothing than to tell people that it'll be a while. That or someone at google is just really bad at their job.

Facebook sync is Facebook's fault. The API is there, they are just lazy.

I'm very disappointed, this bug is very annoying.

The bigger a company is, the slower they become. Instead of having one guy do the work and fix it, you need to pass through several layers of approval and people "management" which get in the way. Not only is the request lost several times in between but even if someone at the company wants to fix it, they're told to do something else or fear the risk of being fired.

This is why progress is often achieved by small groups or individuals.

This really sounds like it could work. It's unfortunate but there's generally little incentive to change something unless a fuss is made. Look at what happened with Siri and the "best phone ever" question (Lumiagate). This stuff happens in politics all the time. Nothing gets changed until the press has a field day with it.

That's a good way of putting it. I wish this was fixed because I love seeing high-res pictures in my caller id. Unfortunately, none of my friends use Google+ and I don't use Facebook. Currently I just update the pictures of people who I've starred and, every now and then, I'll update the pictures of people I happen to have on my phone at the moment. I hope it gets fixed by the time JB is dropped.

Maybe it's cause of bandwitch or older phones that will use 96 x 96. That's why they are thinking how to get around this... Let's hope that they will soon fix this issue.
