Can the Droid Maxx sync contacts with Facebook?

My old Droid used to sync the photos from FB with my contacts, but I have yet to find a way to make my new replacement phone (Droid Maxx) do that.  Is it no longer posible or am I missing something?

You used to be able to used third party apps like Ubersync and HaxSync, However Facebook has since closed off the contacts API and these applications will not work.

So currently there is no way for us Droid Maxx users to sync facebook contacts.

No.  Jelly Bean did not allow the connection, but Haxsync app does allow this through a work around.

Welcome.  I had to use that on my GNEX and Razr Maxx from Ice Cream Sandwich through JellyBean.
