Can't sync facebook to the People and Messaging App

    Question

  • I've tried and successfully synced my Google account to the People App. However Facebook has not synced. It says it's located my account and everything and will need a few minutes to load.....but it never loads.

  • Hi,

    Base on my test, Windows 8 can sync Facebook to messaging app.

    I suggest to logon with Clean Boot, and temporary disable firewall and antivirus program for test.

    If the issue persists, try to reinstall messaging app from APP store.

    Regards,

  • Same problem... All contacts appear online all the time. I tried to uninstall, installed the app again and it didn't work.
