Facebook Account Does Not Work

REPRODUCIBILITY (% or how often): 100%
BUILD ID = OS VERSION (Settings > About product): 4.0.1.48
HARDWARE (XA2, Xperia 10…): XA2
UI LANGUAGE: English
REGRESSION: (compared to previous public release: Yes, No, ?): Unknown

DESCRIPTION:

I have created a Facebook account using Settings/Accounts which appears to have been successfully created (i.e. there are no error or warning messages).

The functionality seems to imply that facebook pictures will be downloaded to the phone and facebook events will appear in the calendar. I am not clear what other functionality the facebook account provides.

Whilst I have a calendar ‘Facebook’ now on the phone and also a ‘Facebook’ folder in the Gallery app there are no events in the calendar and no images in the folder (obviously both exist on Facebook itself).

I have tried clearing and re-indexing the image cache, and also manually synchronising the Facebook calendar; neither make any difference.

The accounts has existed for over a week now and nothing has changed.

PRECONDITIONS:

STEPS TO REPRODUCE:

  1. Create a facebook account
  2. Check that facebook images have been downloaded - there are none
  3. Check that Facebook events are synchronised - there are none

EXPECTED RESULT:

Facebook events are synchronised with the appropriate phone calendar and images downloaded into the phone’s Facebook folder

ACTUAL RESULT:

Nothing happens.
