Experiencing Facebook issues on Windows Phone? You're not alone
Update 5PM ET: Microsoft's Joe Belfiore has Tweeted that Facebook is working on a fix right now. Stand by...
Facebook is one of the top social networks available today and is an important part of millions of lives. Windows Phone sports integration with the service, pulling content from the network for contacts and more. We've received reports that synchronising accounts appear to be failing, so what's going on?
Wev'e been able to confirm this with the error 83CF1104 hitting us when attempting to sync the connected account, but we're wanting to know just how many of you have been affected by the problem, especially since reports are coming in from multiple regions. Be sure to vote in our poll below and sound off in the comments. We've reached out to Microsoft for comment on the issue and will update accordingly.
Readers have also taken to our forums to keep everyone up-to-date.
Thanks to everyone who tipped us on this problem!

I have seen intermittent problem last couple of days with Hotmail/Outlook and Facebook.
Hate that my contact photos don't update anymore...
open your profile picture
click on options->set as profile pic
confirm. And done. You basically set the same pic again... worked for me and,my girlfriend. So then at least your own pic is up-to-date
The only problem I have is I change my profile picture (Facebook and Outlook), but some hours later, my profile picture has return to the old one.
MY pic on Facebook and outook (W8) is correct.
The problem seems to be only on WP8.
I'm using GDR3 Preview.
NOT to use skype. As far as I can remember, it messes around the OS.

Thought I was the only one experiencing this
820, Botswana, Africa
More than 3 yrs since d inception of WP, yet there is no fully functional Facebook or Facebook messenger on WP!
Inbuilt fb chat in messaging hub is pathetic! Msgs arriving with much delay, no picture msgs & now stops working fully.! WTF MS..!!
I have contacted MS, and Nokia about it and all I've really gotten out of it is "do a hard reset". I don't want to go through that if the issue isn't going to be fixed.
Its perfectly fine till yesterday, I deleted it as its not updating my profile pic. Since then the issue begin ! Tried this morning even!!! No luck
Fix it Asap
