Hallo, my Jolla runs Sailfish OS Yliaavanlampi. Since yesterday Friends is not able to sync with Facebook anymore. The problem is not only for the upgrade 1 1.4 28.

That's probably because the Friends application uses an old version of the Facebook API, which was deprecated on April 30th 2015. See the following page: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/apps/api-v1-deprecation

Friends is basically dead now, sadly

Friends, like any other app trying to access any other than public FB content, needs to use newer Facebook API which will be introduced on Jolla starting from 1.1.4 update. Also the Friends app itself might need an update because of this.

The old Facebook API, still used on Sailfish OS 1.1.2 and earlier versions, is no longer (since April 30, 2015) supported by Facebook. Quoted from FB:

Your app must be upgraded to make calls to v2.0 or greater. SOURCE

After April 30th, 2015 apps will no longer be able to access the service or API. This includes both access to chat.facebook.com and the xmpp_login permission. SOURCE

Access to the Public Feed API is restricted to a limited set of media publishers and usage requires prior approval by Facebook. You cannot apply to use the API at this time. SOURCE
