Date: April 28th, 2005 - 12:35 amNot only are my FB & LJ groups months out of alignment, but my FB groups predate my upgrade to a paid account by several months. Just like subbes, my FB groups haven't updated despite group and friend changes on the LJ side and new picture addition / requests on the FB side.
The LJ Friends => FB Groups synchronization should happen constantly and always be up-to-date.
That said, the current mechanism is flaky as hell and needs to be redone. We're planning on using our new job management system to help keep this reliable and scalable.
Everyone should have an LJ:all_friends FB group as well as an LJ:(lj groupname) FB group for each of their LiveJournal friends filters. Whenever you change your friends on LiveJournal side, it marks your account as "dirty" and there's a job that goes through and constantly synchronizes those to FB.
Additionally, every 12 hours or so when a picture is requested from your FB account, a full sync is triggered where friends groups and pulled from LiveJournal.
Lots of problems, short answer is we know it sucks and plan on making it robust.
Does anyone know of anything else I can do to force a sync? If not, any idea when the synchronization system might be changed or improved?
