Android is a great mobile operating system, it provides so many conveniences that I have lost count. But I can certainly turn off some features which don’t fancy my liking. This article will teach you how to remove Facebook contacts from phonebook with ease. Many people are not aware that Android phone book can actually pull contacts from other apps as well. This is a pretty great feature if you need to find someone’s contact information in a hurry.
While this contact synchronization feature can work great with messaging apps like Whatsapp or video chat apps like Skype, it cannot work amazingly with social media. If you have limited number of people added on your Facebook account then you won’t really need to remove Facebook Contacts from phonebook at all. But if you are popular and have a large following on Facebook the managing thousands of useless contacts in your phonebook can be a hassle.
I personally only prefer the contacts which have phone numbers attached to them. This is why Whatsapp contacts are the best ones to sync with your Android device. If you have already synced the contacts and feel that your phonebook feels a bit crowded, this guide will be really helpful to you. Although if you have less than 100 friends on Facebook, I recommend that you merge the contacts with your existing ones. This will give you updated profile pictures automatically and you can retain the phone numbers too. I have done this and wouldn’t be any happier. Combine this with the Google’s awesome contacts backup service and you have a complete phonebook all the time.
