    Just tried it but the people app is for my phone app sync etc. For using facebook i mainly just use facebook on a browser.
    But this means i can't update my people on my pc so they change on my phone and other devices. Maybe i should try contacting Microsoft about it worked in the beginning.. maybe it's because facebook is updating something i don't know. Fliptoast works. So i assume it has to do something with a setting or a App problem
