i've just upgraded to the Desire & am liking many things in it, but this issue bugs me:i've synced & linked the contacts in my 'people' app. in some cases, this involved linking the FaceBook profile of a person with a pre-exisitng phone number in my phone/sim card.The problem is that the phone seems to default to the Facebook 'profile picture' as the icon/photo that shows up in my People app (for that contact), even if tell it not to.I've tried downloading new pics, or taking a photo with the camera, and then manually setting this as the 'icon' for a certain person. This works for a while (a few hours?) and then within one day, the phone automatically re-sets this icon & replaces it with the Facebook profile pic. again.
I have the camera resolution set to superfine(5mp) and it takes really good pics.However,when I transfer them to my laptop and try to view them with the windows photo viewer they aren't anywhere near the resolution I took them in.Is there something I did or not doing ?,I took a 5mp Pic,transferred it to my pc and it showed up at less than 15kb in size when it should have been like 2-3 megs.
I could be missing this, but is there a way to send/tag a photo to facebook from the photo itself? The Facebook app for my blackberry lets me do this. If I pull up a photo I just took, I have the option of sending it to Facebook, as well as tagging it. I can't figure out how to do this on my Moment.
Is it possible to take pictures from the facebook app and copy them to the phone to be used for contact's pictures? For instance, I can sign into my facebook account and then go to my friends page and view their photos but I can't copy them to the phone.
I took a photo in San Francisco yesterday with Droid and uploaded it using Facebook app. But it is really tiny, downsized too much.Overall, it's a great phone. Do wish it had some Sense UI sexiness though!
Some of my contacts photos update, some never do, some do it randomly. Yes I sync, I update through the contact, I've tried everything I can think of. Whats the trick here? Yes they are all linked because they have pictures but some have pictures from 5 months ago!
Is anyone else having a problem viewing photos on Facebook using the browser? When I open a friend's album it shows the thumbnails and once I click on a picture it brings up a (flash looking) photo viewer window. This doesn't allow you comment, like, or view comments on the pictures. Is there a different way to view these, am I missing something?
I was wondering if there is anyway to have facebook notify you when someone comments on your status or on a photo? I wouldn't see why google would leave this out, the only thing I see is settings for when people send you a message or a poke. If there is any way that you can turn on notifications..
I love the way the Hero's photo album and contact app integrates with Facebook / Flikr. From the album you can go right into you friend's pictures and thumb through them, and from the contacts you can see birthdays, Facebook profile pics, status updates, etc. Is there anything like this available in the market?
I've searched the forums but have found no solution to my issue.Whenever I go to gallery and click on a photo to "Share" and click facebook I immediately receive an error "Upload, An error had occurred while saving the photo" anyone have any suggestions? I tried rebooting among other things.I love the phone so far though just want to upload pics to facebook now
I just rooted my phone and loaded a 2.1 ROM (Damage Control v2.08). Everything seems to be working great. I went into my contacts (reloaded through MS Exchange) and noticed that some of the Facebook photos were auto linked to a contact, but some were not. I am guessing the ones that did not do not have a name that matches exactly did not load.With the stock phone, I was able to manually select the Facebook friend I wanted to associate with my contact and it added the picture.With 2.1, when I try to manually select a Facebook contact through "Link Facebook Profile", the screen doesn't list anyone to choose from.It is just blank and says "no matches found".Has anyone else had this problem? I'm trying to figure out how to manually link people. I can log into Facebook with no problem and everything there seems to work.
I saw a previous thread (Changing my contact card picture) where a similar question was never quite resolved. I have the same issue except that my contact card has automatically synced to my facebook and I would prefer to change to a different picture that is not my facebook profile picture. There's no option to do so under people->my contact card and if I go to a picture in my albums it only lets me set the photo for a contact that is not me.
Found a perfect program for syncing my Google Contacts with their facebook account pictures (without using the sh*tty facebook app sync)..thought I'd share incase it hasnt been mentioned.Google Contact Sync | Heart of Angel..Worked perfect for me, especially if you make sure that your google contact names match the facebook names
When I try to use Sense to view photo albums for one friend, it shows that they have zero photo albums. The official facebook app does the same. If I use the browser to visit her profile, I can see her numerous photo albums easily, but damnit! I want the software to work like it's designed and this little bug seems so bizarre. As far as I can tell, the missing albums bug only applies to this one friend. I would be able to easily overlook the bug except that one friend is my fiancee.
I'd like to snap a photo on the Eris and upload to Facebook with a comment. It seems the built-in app that came with the Eris doesn't allow comments to be posted. I tried Bloo, which does allow comments, but the photos don't appear in Facebook until I go to my page and approve the photos. Am I missing a way to comment with the built-in app, or a way to have the photos appear without special approval with Bloo? Or is there a better app for this.
My contact photo's/icon's keep getting overridden by their linked Facebook photo.. i set the particular contact to a photo and in a couple of seconds their facebook photo is back as their icon.. any way to keep this from happening.
This is my first post, so be gentle with me! For some reason my pictures i take with the camera will no longer upload to Facebook. They used to upload fine, when taken on the lowest 2mp setting, but now, i just get a message every time saying upload failed. Anyone have any idea's?
