    Odd facebook link

    Advertisement



    hey guys,
    so I just recently upgraded my Bold OS to rogers .282, and downloaded BBM 5.0, I just noticed now that in my address book, some entries have linked to that persons facebook page, adding a picture, a facebook name, employer etc... anyone else notice this? and if so, do you know why it is only doing it for random entries and not all?
    at first i thought it was for people whose email i had, and it happened to link to their facebook account, but that doesnt appear to be the case... any thoughts, its pretty cool actually, if a bit creepy...

    Yea, this is normal. I think it picks up on the names of the people who have PIN associated with them and merges FB names with them.
    I have a BlackBerry and a WhiteApple. :)

    Yep I have my contacts the same way I think it is a wonderful function, especially as it even adds email addresses and date of births.

    Normal. It automatically does so, if you add a new contact who's on your fb friends list.

    Yup figured out how to link FB contacts to phone contacts if the phone doesnt do it on its own, any idea why for some people it gets all info, ie job, birthdate etc while others things like the birthday doesnt come up, even though its on their profile?

    no idea. the new fb app is a little flaky with that. it merges some contacts but not others, and even if you force the connection it still doesn't always work.
