If you have contact (in you phonebook) called Charles and his Facebook name is Charly, when you join them the name that is going to be displayed is Charly. On the other side, if his phonebook name is Charly and his facebook name is Charles that name that is persistent is going to be Charly again.

    The thing is that the display name is the "last" alphabetically listed. I have done a series of testing over this and the result is always the same. I know this is no solution for the issue, but at least can make us understand what name the join is going to take.

    Hopefully people at Google can introduce an update in which we can select what name we want to display.
    Yes, It displays the last name that alphabetically would go last. A trick that i did was to add extra characters to the google contacts so it uses the google contact name instead of the facebook name. It works great if you ghetto rig it like that. :-)

    Hi there. Just a quick addon question for this topic. Is it possible to get facebook updates (notifications) for your contacts without downloading apps or enabling the mobile updates in facebook?

    Not to bump an ancient thread, but I'm still experiencing this problem where the Facebook or Twitter name is used instead of the Google Contact name.

    Is there any way to fix this now we're on Froyo?

    Select a contact to view its details, then press the Menu key and choose "Edit." Once in edit mode, hit the Menu key again, and they Join button will be in the bottom-right corner.
