No FB status updates in contacts

I upgraded to ICS few days back and I'm liking it. But there is this problem that even after syncing my facebook account, I dont get the option of showing status updates in contacts. That option is grayed out. Any solution?

Also, some of my contacts are not fully syncing with facebook. Contact picture is not being displayed for some.

I followed that procedure but still the 'Show status updates' option is grayed out. Can't select it.

Re: No FB status updates in contacts

settings > app > all >facebook > clear data

Turn on wifi

Go to settings > account and sync > turn it on

Add account > add facebook (Add facebook and use it for a minute) and facebook inside Xperia as well

wait for atleast 5 minutes and let the contacts sync

Now go to contacts > settings > select show status updates > all

Now-

you have to sync atleast for 4-5 minutes,, both "facebook" and "facebook inside xperia"

even make sure you log in into facebook and even select "sync" option that it shows at startup and use facebook for one minute

Then go to contacts :smileyhappy:

Re: No FB status updates in contacts

that comes after syncing it for sometime

same here :smileyhappy: you have to use fb account for sometime and have to add both facebook inside xperia and facebook both for about 5 minutes,,, then only the show status updates would be availble to select :smileyhappy:

One single mistake in the above procedure won't let you do the job

My advice is to do whole process again because ther is no settings outside ( the above procedure)

Re: No FB status updates in contacts

i did it again , the option became active after 3--4 minutes :smileyhappy:
make sure you have enabled fb integration

settings > facebook insde xperia > mark facebook integration

make sure you log in to facebook and select "sync with existing contacts" and then select done :smileyhappy:

EDIT : tap and hold on homescreen > widgest > facebook widget > add it on homescreen and check

Re: No FB status updates in contacts

So the solution to this problem was to simply put the facebook widget on the home screen. Without which there'd be no option to show the status updates.
