“Syncing is horribly implemented. There's no feature to manually select which contacts/friends you would like synced. The app itself automatically chooses which facebook user, not friend, is synced to each contact in your iPhone contact list. The reason I say “facebook user” and not “facebook friend” is because it will sync random facebook users to iPhone contacts with the same name; even if you aren't friends with said random facebook user. Sometimes, there doesn't even need to be common name! It synced a phone contact I have listed as “Susie Accident in Alhambra” to someone on Facebook named “Ehl. Edizon” from some Spanish speaking country who I've never met, I'm not even facebook friends withm and don't even have any mutual friends with!”
With the new version, Facebook claims to have fixed a few crashes, rectified the incorrect matching in address book syncing as well as corrected the bug causing incorrect matches for contacts with same name.Users can download the iPhone app by
(iTunes Link).
Please don't forget to tell us if this version fixes the bugs.
