How to Remove Facebook Contacts from Android Contacts/Phonebook

Facebook recently launched its native home launcher app for some high-end Android phones. Despite of being one of the most discussed apps, Facebook Home did not receive nice reception and good review. If you are a FB fan-boy, you might adore that app but for must users it’s an app they won’t like to have over the top of everything.

If you have thousands of friends or followers on Facebook and Twitter and a large circle on Google Plus, you can sync all those contacts with their mail ID and phone numbers to your phone’s contacts. The feature is indeed very nice and having more and more people’s contact on our handheld device is really great. But this can also be a problem for many users. In most cases, our Facebook/ Twitter/ Google+ friends are those whom we do not know personally, or at least they are such people with whom we share images and opinions but not necessarily our personal things by calling them.

Thousands of names in our phone’s address book might prove a nuisance each time you have to select a contact to call. You can use the alphabet indexer to make make scrolling a little easier but it can still feel bad. Personally, I prefer my phone to show only the contacts with phone numbers.

If you see your Facebook or Twitter contacts on your phone’s address book and want to remove them, you can do this by disabling the sync feature on your Android device. Here is how:
