I'm on Android and Syncing my contacts with Gmail/Google contacts. I don't have a Facebook account.

And lot of my phone contacts are on Facebook where they have a profile ipcture.

Is there any way to sync my contacts and match them against those photos on Facebook based on their phone number?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

Your down vote isn't fair. I have already tried that software, If you read my question I have clearly mentioned that I don't have a Facebook account and that software need one. What I'm looking for is a public search and match. – D_Guy13 Jun 7 '13 at 14:34
You are right of course. If you don't have a Facebook account there isn't a way to use information contained within a Facebook profile. You didn't mention you already tried that software, update your question to reflect that fact, and I will remove the downvote. – Ramhound Jun 7 '13 at 14:39
If you don't have a Facebook account how do you have contacts on Facebook? – slybloty Jun 7 '13 at 17:42
@slybloty, I Think there is a workround, just needs a coder. 1. Find user id & name: 2. A search on this page with the Name/Username will return their image, publicaly: 3. Parse it and append it to Google Contact. I'm not aware if Google Contacts API can allow such thing or not, just an idea. – D_Guy13 Jun 7 '13 at 18:46
Are referring to facebook app or facebook account? – slybloty Jun 7 '13 at 19:03
