    Messaging/People Profile Photo Not Visible

    Hey everyone,

    This is my very first post on this forum. I am hoping I am not posting this in the wrong category.

    I have a small problem with Messaging and People Apps on Windows 8. I have added my Facebook account to Messaging App and it works amazing. However, my profile photo is not visible in neither Messaging App nor in People App. I clearly remember when I was using Release Preview, it worked just fine. I attached two parts of screen shots. I was wondering if anyone is experiencing anything similar to this one. Any help is appreciated.

    My profile shows correctly in both Messaging and People, also I didn't have to add Facebook it was automatically there but that could be because I connected Facebook to my Hotmail account a while ago. Do you log into Windows 8 with your Hotmail account or local?
