For some peculiar reason not all of my FaceBook friends are syncing with my Playbook contacts...
and they all appear to be people i also follow on Twitter.
i have deleted all my accounts and added them back on, starting with Facebook, but it doesn't solve it.
My wife has her own PlayBook with the same OS 220.127.116.118 and the same circle of friends, but hers works.
The only thing different that I can think of is I am using the latest beta version of Facebook on my BlackBerry smartphone
Any ideas or solutions welcome!

Just tried it, and thought it might have worked... Although I had the latest Facebook, it was still shown as uninstalled on my App World.
I deleted Facebook from my phone and deleted the account on the PlayBook... Then reinstalled on phone and reinstated account on PlayBook.
Unfortunately, it didn't work

I can't see any differences in mine and my wife's Facebook security settings...
I have also conducted another deletion of all my accounts and then reinstall them one at a time (starting with Facebook ) and see what happens in the contacts... Still no luck....
But some people may be interested to know that my Gmail account of email, contacts and calendar has been splint into 3 separate accounts (which it never did before) and it also gave me the option to sync contacts and calendars with my yahoo accounts (which again it never allowed before)... This must be due to the latest OS update.
My next task will be.....
Santa is bringing my son a shiny new PlayBook on Tuesday.. Although I have set it up for him before it was wrapped, I will need to install the most recent OS update.
As my son is 6 and doesn't have any email or social media accounts I will activate my FaceBook account on his tablet... And I have a funny feeling it might work perfectly... And if that's the case then I will have to perform a security wipe on my Playbook and start again.
I will keep you informed of developments!

Okay, I've managed to conduct my test sooner than expected as my father in law bought my mother in law a PlayBook and I got to set it up today.
I first setup my FaceBook on it... And as per usual it is not syncing all my contacts (as above ) and not photos.
I then deleted the account and set up my mother in laws... It synced all her contacts and photos... It must be something to do with Facebook settings but I don't know what
