I had a nice app that was scraping FB photos and birthdays into my GG Contacts. It stopped working right after this.

The Google phone was pulling in photos from Facebook, and combining the Facebook photo with the Google contact. 

I shut of the facebook feed as I got fed up of the crap coming through from Friends and family :) So not tried it in the last three weeks.
