hi, i wanted to know how can I enable or why my whatsapp is not showing me the pictures of my contacts, I have all my contacts on my google account, none on the phone, and none on the sim card, and a lot of the are linked to facebook, twitter, etc.

and if you look at contacts all of them show the pictures, but in whatsapp only a few show the pictures of the contacts

any solution?

Probably you are not able to see Facebook contact photos in whatsapp. There were allowed to be "pulled" in Sense 3.0 but in Sense above this version they are not shown.
There are few solutions:
1. If you have a rooted phone you can try Photo Unlocker application, sadly, it has been pulled out from the market so you would need to search XDA for it.
2. You can use HaxSync to sync the pictures from Facebook and they would show normally. Alternative app is called Friend Caster.
3. People say there was an update to Whatsapp recently (can't see any on the market to be honest just now) which enables it.

After synchronizing your contacts with facebook, use photounlocker to unlock the restriction on facebook contacts.

1- open app
2- press check, it will ask for root permissions
3- press check again
4- press unlock

Done

Enjoy

if on sense, facebook for htc sense is needed and it will synchronise you friends photos from fb
on Aosp you need to manually add a picture to each contsct you have, but this process you do it once in s liftime and whatever the rom you will be using your contacts photo will remain on any google phone

if you are on AOSP you can also use an app called HaxSync this will pull the photos from facebook and display them in whatsapp i am using it on IceColdSandwich and it works great
