    so i was playing with the settings and in the accounts/sync area you can hit new account and it gives you facebook as a menu option. however, the screen just blinks and does nothing, no prompt for account name/password, no sync. does anyone else have this have this issue? Has anyone successfully sync'd facebook?

    Yes, mine does the same. Never noticed it until I just tested it for you since I don't sync Facebook with any of my devices.

    What would there even be to sync? Facebook doesn't use contacts or anything like that.

    It syncs your friends list into your contact list on the phone. You can link a contact to their facebook page. This provides a direct link to their facebook page through your contact list. Try downloading the Facebook app through the marketplace. After logging through there it sholud give you the option to sync.

    Sent from my Droid using Everything Android App, copy & paste, and the eA website because app is still broke. Lol

    I downloaded the facebook app, and thee only option when you click the menu button on it is "refresh" .. unlike the menu that pops up on Droid phone for example ... after hitting the menu option on Droid, you get setting and you can see the options for syncing contacts

    I reset my Xoom yesterday because of the same observation of not being able to add the Facebook account.
    This is where it became interesting.
    After reset, and it going back to initial boot, I added my Google account, then went to add my Facebook account. When I clicked on Facebook, it went to the Android Market and installed the Facebook for Android App. This still did not sync my Facebook pictures with my Contacts like it does on my EVO. It also does not show a Facebook account under Accounts & sync.
    So, I then clicked on Add Account again, and nothing happens.
    I then went to the Android Market and did a search. I installed SyncMyPix, and performed the sync in that App, set the sync frequency in that app, and now everything in Contacts show all my Facebook profile pictures correctly?
