Display of Facebook Contacts

Post by jreisen »

Contacts from Facebook are showing up with their FB IDs instead of their names/aliases, like this: -123456789@chat.facebook.com. This started in the last few days. I downloaded the latest update, 1.5.7, and it's still happening. I've been through every display option available and can't get it to change. Any ideas?

Thanks.

It's a server-side issue. Other apps are affected as well.

Weird. Sometimes the contacts fix themselves, but often they just display as the OP said.

I, too, am having this problem. If it's server side, how do we let Facebook know this is a problem for MANY users?

They are well aware of the issue and we've been told it'll take another two weeks or so for a fix to land.
