Okay.... Some how a lot of my contacts now have pictures of them automaticly put did this happen?!?!

It looks like the pictures are off facebook, but it this the fbook app that is doing this?

It confuses be because for some people their numbers are not on facebook, so does it check their name from the contact? At the same time their are contacts with no picture but has the same name as my friend on facebook.

Is anyone else noticing this? try looking through your phonebook if you have facebook

UPDATE: okay, so it looks like it is pulling facebook pictures if it matches the EXACT name in your contacts....pretty cool

they probably set photos for themselves in their gmail accounts. when it syncs, it'd use those photos.

Gmail contacts adding their own pics sounds most likely. I have the fbook app installed and 99% of my friends have facebook pics yet only two of my contacts have pics.

If you log in to you can manage your contacts from there, and it gives you the option to use the picture they have associated with their account or one you have associated with it.

It cant be gmail, because the pictures are identical to their profile pictures on facebook. Also, a lot of theese people do not have gmail accounts, and I dont even have thier emails, just phone numbers. This is still crazy how no one else has expierenced this yet.
