Turn on and off Facebook Contact Syncing for HTC One M8
Edited by Thor, Crystal, Jen M, Crystal0530 and 4 others
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to turn on and off the option to sync your phone contacts with Facebook on an HTC One M8.
- 4Now that the folder has been opened, we need to find and tap the Facebook application. There is a Facebook icon, which is a blue background with a white "f" inside, and underneath it says the word "Facebook". Your application may be in a different location, so look for the icon in your folder. We now need to find the settings menu.
- 8Tap on the chosen option. At the top it says, "Add Facebook pictures, status, and contact info to Contacts?" This means that this function will sync our contacts from our phonebook to Facebook, so that Facebook can put information about those contacts in your phonebook. When we go to our phonebook on our HTC One M8 and look at our contacts, we will see their status updates and a photo. We can see that the blue circle is to the right of "Don't sync", indicating that it is the selected option. We also have two other options: "Sync all", "Sync data about all friends to Contacts", or "Sync with existing contacts", "Sync data about friends already in Contacts". We're going to choose "Sync all".

Questions and Answers
I do not have the sync option in my Facebook settings?
I have been through the steps but when I go into the app setting I do not have the sync contacts options. I have tried: Uninstall app, re install, reset phone, turn phone off. I think it was caused by: I do not know. They were synced until I had to reset my password for Facebook
As suggested by a Facebook support team representative, this feature had been removed. Here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/help/community/question/?id=10153485306296293. Your application was updated, which is why the option disappeared.
As a solution, you might want to keep checking back for the application upgrades, in case the developer decides to put the feature back, or using alternatives like Fast.
