How to Sync FaceBook With iPhone

It's easy to become scattered throughout the virtual world. Between social media, your work computer, your home computer and your iPhone, it may take you a while to find a particular contact. However, with the free Facebook app for iPhone, you can consolidate your contacts. The app downloads profile pictures and contact information to your iPhone. It creates new contacts in your Contacts List and merges the contact information with existing contacts. The app also constantly keeps the information synced, so your contacts list reflects profile photos or other changes.
