Now, you might be saying: “Adam, I’ve known how to do this for a year… you’re an idiot.” But, I was just informed of this little gem function and figured there must be at least SOMEONE out there who this might have not heard of this yet.
While at a recent dinner with the straights, it came up that a friend of mine wanted me to pose for a shot with his iPhone so he could: “Have picture of me pop up when I called,” to which I replied: “Sure, actually, if we have time I want to get a pic of everyone…” At this point our tech friend Brodie held back a laugh and asked why we didn’t just sync our contacts with our Facebook app. What… The… Frig… Who the hell knew you could do that? Apparently, for a WHILE now us iPhone users who also take part in the Facebook app (and really, who doesn’t), have been able to follow a few quick steps and from there-on-in have up to date (according to our friends’ profile pics) photos every time we send a call or receive one.
SO, for those out there who don’t know, all you need do is click on the Facebook app. Go to the main screen and click on “Friends” in the top right corner. Then, click on “Sync” which will appear in the top right corner. Then, swipe “Syncing” over to ON and BAM: the pics from your friends’ profiles will be associated with your contacts forevermore. I checked it out- before you ask- and you your friends needn’t have posted their number on their FB profile for it to sync up, it seems all that connects it is the name. If you already have a pic associated with a friend’s contact you don’t want to forgo you also have the option to save the pre-elected pic as oppose to defaulting to their profile pic.
It’s simple, it’s easy… it’s kind of ridiculous I’ve never heard of it before. It’s a HUGE time saver and now you needn’t fill up your photos with ridiculous, poorly lit iPhone snaps taken at assuredly the drunkest of moments. Maybe this is completely redundant to you all, but if I can “affect the life of even one homo, I’ll have done my job” ;) Somehow I doubt that quotation was at all meant for this situation, but oh well ha.
