Built in facebook vs Facebook app from market

The builtin facebook app (motoblur version) is somewhat interesting, although very fractionated throughout the UI.  Would there be any conficts when installing the facebook app from market,  Although that app is very much maligned it still functions as a totla product as opposed to the aforementioned..it also offers some benefits such as facebook specific notification and LED indicator.

I use "bloo" a facebook app from the market. I have facebooks built in app set up so i can sync my contact pics and thats about it I disabled the built in apps notifications from its menu and now use bloo from the rest. it has more features and I think it flows better. It's a personal opinion, most of my friends are fine with built in app, I like that bloo used a blue LED indicator and a different ringtone.

i just use the actual fb mobile site. it blows all apps away....which isn't saying much. the fb apps just aren't that good. the mobile site through your browser is way better. you can't directly upload pics through it, but you can always use the app just for pics (or just mms or email them...that's what i do). try the mobile site if you use fb from your pc....it's a lot like that actual site. set up a shortcut and it's better than any app.

Go to the Market "home screen". Click the "settings" button and one of the options will be "Downloads". Click it and it will check what's installed and see if there are updates available.

How did u sync ur FB contacts? Whenever I add my account it syncs alllllll my contacts. And everyone keeps telling me that there should be an option to sync all, some, or none. And I never see it. Even the manual says it.
