    Go to settings, accounts and sync and disable auto sync for facebook.

    I found all my Facebook albums in my Gallery one day just recently. I have the settings disabled. I figured out how they got there. I accidentally pressed the sync icon on my front page of my phone, which is next to my icon for increasing or decreasing brightness. I had no idea that by accidentally touching the sync icon, that I would end up having all my Facebook albums in my Gallery. So, my question is, how do I delete all of the albums in my Gallery? I really don't want them there. I have a Sony Ericsson Xperia X10. Thanks.

    Turn off the synchronization. If your phone has downloaded the pictures, simply delete them.

    Afraid that doesn't do it -- turning off synchronization prevents future synchs, but doesn't remove existing synched facebook pictures. You can't delete the existing facebook pics from the Gallery because they don't exist in the Gallery. This is super annoying...hope I don't have to remove & reinstall Facebook app, but that's what it may require.

    Once you turn off sync go into application manager and clear data for gallery

    Hey guys, i got it to work so here is what i did. It was frustrating so i played with it a little here is the basics of what i did for android
    Make sure you go to settings on your phone, then under accounts, click on google click on each email you have for syncing and then uncheck the boxes that say "sync google photos" and "sync picasa web album".

    next..

    1.I deleted all of my photos off of my facebook (i was going to delete facebook account anyway)
    2. i had to uninstall facebook, then re install it again ....and right before it comes on it will ask you too syn contact/photos... select "no syn"
    3. next i went to "settings" then "application manager" on my phone ... found the facebook app and cleared the data....
    4. then i went to gallery app in application manager and cleared that data too.
    5. then i uninstalled facebook again.
    6. then i went to "storage" on my phone.. clicked on photos and then deleted all of my photos on there
    7. i backed out and went back to application manager to see if my gallery app data was still cleared,.... if not then clear it again.

    just make sure you are doing these things .. i was really playing with it, but those are the main places i was deleting at. hope it helped.
