Hi!

I'm looking to pick a new phone hopefully Lumia 920. I have a question with respect to WP8.

My understanding is that once all my contacts are added, they are placed in the people hub. I will be adding my facebook account and twitter too. My question is that once I add Fb and Twitter account, will all my contacts from both these networks be added along with my other contacts on the people hub? I'm asking because I have about 600+ friends on Facebook and I don't want all of them to be available on the people hub as there are so many of them whom I don't care about or haven't spoken to them in a while.

How does the integration work?

Thanks

You can choose which accounts populate the People hub. For instance, you could include Facebook contacts and exclude Twitter contacts if you want.

Can my contacts on the phone merge with their facebook accounts? I was hoping thats how it would work like Haxsync on Android does :s

Yep, that's possible too - it's called linking. For instance, I have contacts from an Exchange account, Hotmail, Skype, etc. and have linked the duplicates together so they only appear once in the People Hub.

Also, you can set it to only show Facebook contacts that are on your phone. That's what I did.

So I entered my contacts in and then linked them and all of the people on Facebook that I will NEVER call just don't show up.
