I am using the iOS Facebook Integration, which adds my Facebook friends to my contacts in the phone app. Yesterday I noticed that some of these Facebook contacts have been disappeared, despite being still 'Friends' with them on Facebook.

Is this maybe due to some Facebook privacy feature?

It seems Facebook did this on purpose. Facebook tries to only sync contacts which include useful information.

Friends without contact information other than a '@facebook.com'-email are no longer synced.
