    How to: Separate specific contact from Facebook info?

    This is annoying. My son and one of my contacts of Facebook (whom I never contact directly and thus is not a GMail contact) have the same first and last name. So, of course, Android concludes they are the same person and I get the contact's picture as my son's face and the contact's updates on my son's contact info.

    So I want to tell the contact list that it should unlink the Facebook info from my contact.

    What's the simplest way to do this?

    Thanks in advance.

    Many thanks to you both. I guess the first option would probably remove all Facebook links, which is a bit too indiscriminate.

    But I tried option 2 and it did indeed keep my son as 1 single contact (even though I made up his info by merging 3 contacts) separate from the newly created Facebook contact.
