So Facebook has finally been updated and we have a menu button, but it looks like they removed the contact sync options :/

Given sync was removed from the Nexus S I doubt we'll get it back on the GN.

Finally, a Facebook update thats worthwhile. It looks more like the iOS version now which is surprisingly a good thing!

Facebook's contact sync is still in the app, but it's only accessible through the legacy (read: physical) menu button.

Looks like facebook just got lazy and didn't carry over the entire settings menu into the new ui.

Maybe a nice dev can fix their crap and give you a way to access that 2nd menu?

Nah, afaik it's really FB that doesn't let it sync. Got something to do with FB refusing to use Google's APIs. There's a post on that issue somewhere, can't find it atm. Unless FB change their attitude, we won't be seeing sync in Android.

You are indeed correct.

Hadn't heard of this before, so did some digging and apparently Google got tired of giving FB special access to do a pseudo-sync of contacts (in other words, even though FB data was in the contacts app, it didn't actually sync to google contacts).

I'll have to keep this in mind when I get around to picking up my own Nexus.
